2nd day of my challenge to see how many consecutive days I can ride my Trikke 10+ miles.

Columbia Park is a much more difficult ride. The first half of the the trail is in Columbia Park and this portion of the trail is not maintained as well as some of the other portions of the river trail in the Tri-Cities. Half of the trail in Columbia Park is on the edge of the road and is one of the roughest road surfaces in the Tri-Cities. The portions of the trail that loop down to the river are narrow and have grass overgrowing the path in many areas.

The second half of the ride, from the Blue Bridge to the Cable Bridge is along the dike top and is much wider and smoother. This portion of the trail was much easier to ride on.

Some day soon I will attempt to cross the Cable Bridge on the bike path. I am getting much better at climbing hills and bridges are just another form of hill climb.

I was asked to take some photos of this years Cable Bridge Run for the Port of Pasco to use in some publicity pieces. The day was cold and quite overcast. I really wish instead of a gray sky as a background I could have had a nice blue sky with some clouds. I may have to learn how to ‘replace’ the sky with a shot from earlier this year.

Also making it difficult was that not all the runners would be going by my location. The 1 mile runners never passed the Port of Pasco property since they finished more than a mile earlier. The 5k runners ran along Ainsworth in front of the Port property and the 10k runners ran along the river on the back side of the Port property. I went back and forth bewtween the front and back to try to get some shots that would highlight the Port of Pasco.
