Ride in the Rain

Shared publicly  - 
 
And now a word from our 1st place winner in the Individual Commute Miles category, John Temple Mudge III:

Greetings,

After the luncheon today, I received a fair number of questions about my route and riding distance. Since I do ride a very long commute, I thought it would help to give some details about how I ride. The route is longer on the way home.

In short, on the way to campus, it's a straight shot from Benson to Ranier Ave., to Lake Wa blvd, and side streets to campus. On the way home, I follow the same route until after Ranier Ave, when I turn off and head to downtown Kent. This is to avoid a steep climb up the hill.

I did create a Google map that shows my route to the general vicinity of where I live, if anyone is curious: https://www.google.com/maps/ms?msid=207010785048078775141.0004d09ed183c0edefcaf&msa=0

Hope it helps!

Sincerely, Jack Mudge

Ride in the Rain is drawing to a close, but it's never too late to recognize our glorious sponsors! Wet-weather riding is made so much more enjoyable when your bike is equipped with bright lights, racks, and fenders. And Portland Design Works makes all of these wonderful gadgets! PDW: simple, quality bicycle accessories for everyday riding.

Ride in the Rain-ers, what are you thankful for this year? At Ride in the Rain headquarters, we're pleased to have so many awesome participants and such wonderful sponsors for this year's competition. This week's pre-Thanksgiving sponsor spotlight shines on Hub and Bespoke, Seattle's very own cycle boutique. Thank you Hub and Bespoke, and thank you awesome Rain-ers...now go enjoy the holiday!

We just shipped off 50 Chinook Book mobile apps to the winners of our first Ride in the Rain online raffle. No big deal. Didn't win this time? Don't worry...there are two more raffles in the works!

This year's Recognition Lunch is going to be a hoot! Some lucky competitor is going to ride away with this handsome set of handmade panniers from Ride in the Rain sponsor, Swift Industries. 20 rides gets you into the lunch, so don't forget to log your trips!

Recycled Cycles has been taking care of UW bicyclists for years. They're our nearest bicycle shop AND one of our dearest, which is why we're thrilled to have them as returning Ride in the Rain sponsors.

Get soaked to the gills this November.
Introduction

Each year during the month of November, UW bicyclists join in the Annual Ride in the Rain Challenge. Participants register for the challenge at our website (see right), then track the number of one-way bike trips they make between school or work on campus and their home, making special note of when it is raining. Participants report their ride statistics on a weekly basis during the scheduled reporting periods, using a tracking form for a given week that is only available during the scheduled reporting window for that week. Weekly results are posted on the website during the week following the ride week.

Experienced riders know that weather conditions throughout the year can pose unique challenges. The Ride in the Rain challenge connects bicycle riders with the resources, information and training they need to ride safely all year round.
