2012 July 28 - Seattle Century

Team Mang, LAFBL and Trangko riders at Snoqualmie Falls
Saturday, July 28th, saw 1200 riders do the Seattle Century ride - an annual 100 mile ride across the fringes of Seattle (mostly on the Eastside) starting at Magnuson Park, following the Burke-Gilman trail into Redmond, Duvall, Carnation and a quick in and out into Snoqualmie Falls and back to Seattle via Issaquah-Bellevue-I90.  This particular ride is known for its emphasis on fun and food!
Members of the team had a blast riding with some LAFBL regulars and Trangko riders.  They departed Magnuson Park around 7 and came back a little past 4 to a delicious dinner and beerfest.  As a bonus, this particular photo was featured on Seattle Century's official website, along with a solo picture of Ferdie appearing to pump gas into his bicycle.  Last year, some of the same guys took a memorable picture on the same ride in Woodinville.  The picture made it to the website and into the official brochuer for 2012.  Looks like they're destined to be on 2013's brochure again!  Here's a video summary.
