Heading home from Snohomish, I found myself looking over at the Centennial Trail. Why not I thought? It was the three-year anniversary today of my point-to-point ride. Really hard for me to believe that it's been that long.

The only downside to our ride, happened when we were more than half-way back. Walking along, around a corner up ahead, came two flags - attached to a fast moving motorized Trike. He was coming so fast & of course those flags were moving around. Farah lost her marble, bolted, whirled & I instantly lost a stirrup. On our second rotation, I yelled the first thing that came to mind; "WHOA!" The gentleman got his trike stopped, I'd regained my stirrup & dismounted.
I introduced myself as the Chairman of the CT Coalition, the rider apologized, saying that he knew he was going over 14-mph when he saw us... & that he had met the right person. As a Veteran, he explained that the Veteran's Admin. has a new program where they will pay the cost of one of these trikes for Veterans who qualify. This gentleman is thinking of opening a shop in Lake Stevens, since currently these bikes are only available somewhere down south. (Farah, in the meantime - decided he was very interesting & tried to put her nose in his beard - which she loves to do with Butch :-)
On days when the trail is so busy - it seems that everyone needs to be a little more considerate & that speed should be reduced for the safety of all~
