I'm going to have surgery on my foot next week. I'll be immobilized for two weeks and then in a hard cast for two months. I wanted to get one last good, long ride on my bicycle before the surgery. Most cyclists around here would have headed to the Burke Gillman trail, ridden out to Alki, or circled futilely around Greenlake. Not me. While those other trails were swarming with peds and other cyclists, my route was all but deserted. I feel like I know a really good secret and I probably shouldn't share it, but I will. The secret is this: You can get from downtown Seattle to Federal Way almost entirely on trails or bicycle safe roads. I donít know, maybe I was just the last person to find out.
