Jet lag (and going to bed at 8.30) meant an early rise today. Mission for the day, to get the bike! The bike store is about 8 miles north of the city centre, getting there was easy, getting back was not. Gregg’s bike shop was the destination, the staff were really good and got the bike ready to go and gave me directions to the nearest beach. Why the beach? To get the customary back wheel dip photo (photo to follow). After the photo, i headed back to the hostel. 2 hours and about 20 miles later i made it, via the Seattle needle, this was supposed to be an easy day before i start tomorrow, but got back to the hostel as tired as i would be after a whole day of cycling. This resulted in another 8.30 bed for me, after a had packed up the bike.
Tomorrow i get the 7.30am train from Seattle to Vancouver, WA to start the trip.
