Fixed Gear to Port Gamble

Because rain was forecast, I rode my fixed gear to Port Gamble.  No one else showed up at Winslow Green for the start of our Saturday ride, so I enjoyed riding alone.

Unstable air created beautiful cloudy skies and blustery wind.  A few sprinkles cooled me on the way home, and a 25 knot crosswind tried to blow me into oncoming traffic crossing the bridge over Agate Passage.
