    Actually, that would be 3 riders.

    And I'm in Seabeck...but you probably guessed that!

    A bit curious about your 'handle', Firedad. 26 year retired veteran here...

    That's where I run, Battle Point Park, the old signal base. Now it's soccer fields and playgrounds. Nice observatory too. There's a measured 1.5 mile trail that loops the park.

    I've been trying to get a monthly dinner going at Madison Diner. The owner is cool with us crashing the place every month (they're cruiser riders), I call it the Last Thursday Dinner. Next one is actually the last day of January, Thursday the 31st, come on down - I'll be there around 6:30pm. They close at 8pm.

    Sounds like an interesting place, not far from the Seattle ferry.

    Here's a thread that's been running for a couple of years for ride-to-eats in the northern Virginia area. The RTE's are a bit irregular, but have been great fun--attendance between 10 to over 50 riders showing up. Has definitely required coordinating with the selected eatery. We've tried to visit different places, and locations that span the local riding region. When the weather's nice folks have ridden for a couple of hours to them. Here's the link if anyone's interested in seeing how this one evolved. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=660536

    Don't know how many folks in the west Sound area might be interested, but I'm willing to set some up when I get unpacked . . .

    Here's a few more links if you're around the DC area. Quite a few "inmates" live in Fairfax, Arlington, Manassas, Woodbridge, etc. There's a fair amount of activity most weekends, and often during the week. I've not met a more welcoming group of folks than these; I'm sure you'd feel at home. Except for the traffic, that is!! (I'd go to work at 0530 just to avoid the traffic . . . . ).
