On Wednesday, 6 October, we had the honor of organizing a ride for Mark Stephens who posts as Cokerhead on the RSU forum. Mark is a powerhouse, distance Coker rider from Tulsa, OK. We did an urban ride across the Ballard Bridge, through the waterfront parks to the downtown waterfront, back through the Magnolia neighborhood, down to and across the Hiram Chittenden Locks. We ended with a dinner at Burk’s Cafe, a Cajun restaurant in downtown Ballard where Mark put a tablespoon of Dave’s Insanity hotsauce on his food. Those of us familiar with habenero sauces know better and were thoroughly entertained by the results.
We had an impressive, head turning herd of seven Cokers. The pilots were Mark Stephens, Irene Genelin, Pete Perron, John Childs, Tom Jackson, Steve DeKoekkoek, and myself. Seattle blessed us with excellent weather for some reason. Many photos were taken by people other than me. Hopefully they will post them here.
It was a good day had by all. I’m really glad that the weather cooperated with us. I posted a few pictures from the ride on my moblog: direct from me to you
Mark, if you are ever in the area again, you know who to contact to Coker with!
