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.

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.
