First day on the bike and the rest day

Yesterday we started cycling out of Seattle. It looked like a nice city but navigation was pretty hard work, until we got onto the interurban trail. This was a bike path that used to be an old tram track it was fairly well signed and looked pretty new. The route took us north and we headed to Lake Stevens.

In Lake Stevens we are staying with some warmshowers people. After taking a shower we sat down to a lovely meal. The people we are staying with amongst lots of other things that do the catering for the American Adventure Cyclist supported bike tours.

Today we are doing a bit of washing and some route planning as well as well as heading to the Lake Stevens shopping area to get a haircut and maybe some supplies.

We have returned Cliff has no hair and my beard is a little tidier. I have been reading a lot of the adventure cyclists magazine called go the distance it is pretty good read apart from it is very bike focused.

We had another good dinner before bed getting ready to start our ride again tomorrow, it will be the first night camping in a while.
