This week's solo RSVP ride

My first long-distance bicycle trip was the Cascade Bicycle Club's two-day RSVP ride from Seattle to Vancouver BC in 2005. I repeated that ride, on my own, over Monday and Tuesday earlier this week.

This ride remains one of the best in the region, with great views as well as the satisfaction of making it under your own power not only to another city but another country. But beyond that, I had two additional reasons to ride it again:

  1. Nostalgia.
  2. Being able to pass on advice for anyone else who might want to ride it solo.

I'll begin by posting the pictures I took on this week's ride (whenever possible pairing this week's picture with my 2005 picture), and end with the advice for other riders.
