Mount Vernon 40-mile ride

Four members of the Porsche Bike team rode the Mount Vernon Trail 40 miles today, including a red Bike S, blue Bike FS, grey Bike FS and black Bike X. We started near the center point of the north/south point-to-point trail early at 7am to avoid the mid-day heat. We started the south segment first, then riding back by our cars to the north end. The trail is 18 miles long with Georgetown on one end and George Washington's Mount Vernon home on the other. We mostly rode along the Potomac River and had beautiful sunrise views of the river and the Washington DC monuments with a couple side adventures which totaled the 40 miles. Great ride with four Porsche bicycles!

Bike Spyder donation plaque

 

Proud of this effort. 

BWI from home

 

Found a new back roads way to the Baltimore Washington International Airport bike path today. This route went through a warehouse area near the airport. Since it’s Saturday, the roads were empty making it a stress free ride. I noticed a DHL facility that reminded me of the Porsche RS Spyder … one of my favorite Porsche racers.

First Porsche Panorama Porsche Bike story!

 

Found a Porsche Bike article in the February 1998 edition of Porsche Panorama today. The four-page story was a review of the first-gen Bike S and Bike FS by a PCA Potomac Region member. I do believe this is the first Porsche Bike story in the PCA publication.

Bike S spring 15 miler

 

Weather is about prefect now. Taking advantage, I rode the 1998 Porsche Bike S 15 miles around my neighborhood and out around the military base. I had good pace today. Felt great.

Boxster 986 engine air filter

 

Changed the engine air filter in the 2001 Porsche Boxster 986 today. Preventive maintenance is important. 

Suzuka Sim Race

Started P20, moved up to P17, spun out back to P25 and finished P20 last night at the PCA Sim Racing Series 8 race at Suzuka. Fun driving the Porsche 992 GT3 Cup, but not one of my better finishes.
