Sunday: the Matt and Emily edition

I have been in Tacoma for a while and as of three weeks ago, started school. Commuting everyday, rain or shine can become somewhat boring. So its nice when I can get out on a ride with some good people, and even better when its Matt and Emily.
Sunday was a beautiful day to explore Vashon Island. We met at 10am and rode to Point Defiance to catch the ferry to Vashon.

Eating bagels and cream cheese makes Emily act silly apparently.

Upon our arrival to the southern shore of Vashon, we began a nice gradual one mile climb north on Vashon highway. This was a nice warm up for the rest of the ride.

We stopped for a chi tea at one of the only places in town, and it was perfect.

Matt stealing some chi from Emily. Funny face.

Then it began to rain.

Oh! This was also Emily’s crosschecks main voyage!

The bikes got style and is super zippy…. however, no fenders. Emily suffered, but still managed to smile the whole time. Trooper

We headed back a shorter way, but still managed to see some beautiful country side.

Thankfully the ferry waiting area was covered, which was rad.
Emily had a ferry arrival dance.

A beautiful day.

  1. Three nice bikes for sure. Is that a Surly Troll? It’s the right color, but looks a little less funky and the dropouts are wrong. A Salsa Vaya? What is Matt riding?

    Nice Carradice bags.

  2. Hey Nick, the bike’s a gunnar rock tour, currently set up with moustache bars and disk brakes…it basically looks like an xo-1 right now. It’s been fun following your blog!
