July 21, 2007--We couldn't make it to the Pacific Northwest for the official 2007 Seattle to Portland ride, so we went up a week later and rode the course solo and unsupported on our fixed-gear Quickbeam.  We started a little south of the official start but still logged about 190 miles in under 14 hours despite riding into a southerly headwind all day long.

Presented below, photos from the ride.  Click here for GPS info.
