Cycling in Seattle

On Sunday, May 2nd, I went to cycling with Hitomi and Elias.
It was 11.6 miles run next to Lake Washington Blvd in Seattle.

It was first weekend of Bicycle Sunday event, basically Seattle has closed off vehicle traffic along part of Lake Washington Blvd.
We started off from Sam Smith Park, and went through I-90 trail tunnel (didn’t know there is the one for pedestrian / bicycle) then, headed toward Seward Park. Going around Seward Park, then we headed back to where we originated.

Though, it was shorter than more than 20 miles we did at Skagit Valley. It had more up and down, which challenged me in different way.
After the ride, we’ve went to Schuwanian Cuisine for some hot pot.

One thing I noticed during this cycling is that one pad of the frontal V-brake was “locked,” and also front wheel is slightly misaligned. It seems to be they are somewhat common for new bikes — I found hex wrench in my drawer and hopefully, I’d be able to fix up brake myself… (reading some thing about alignment, it seems to be not impossible, but something I’d rather not mess with myself and should seek some professional help…)
