I noticed your Adobe kit. Are you part of Team Adobe?
“No. I used to work there briefly. I bought the kit when I was there.”
What kind of riding do you like to do?
“I’m just out for exercise — trying to clear my head. Stuff like that. Usually I’ll ride around the city if it’s nice enough. Or I’ll go up to Hyak and ride the gravel trail up there at Iron Horse. Today I’m riding for the first time in a couple months. Work’s been pretty heads down, so I’m just out. It’s certainly nice enough. I thought it was going to be a lot wetter, so I’m thankful for the sun. I’ve mostly done road biking but I’m starting to get to the point where I might buy a mountain bike and start exploring what’s east.”
Are you from Seattle or someplace else?
“Originally I’m from Miami, Florida. Here, it’s beautiful to be able to see mountains and the ocean at the same time. I really appreciate the scale of the landscape. It’s a lot different for sure. I love the Locks. It’s a nice place to come and see the waterfall over the dam. Sometimes the sea lions are out. I like seeing the boats pass through. I rode here today from Capitol Hill. Then I went up to Golden Gardens and now I’m just on my way back.”
