I made it to Phinney without walking the bike! 84th is indeed an easier hill than 83rd. The only problem is that it’s one way the other direction, but it’s nice and wide and empty and I don’t think my .0001 mph at the edge of the road would scare any oncoming cars.
It started drizzling as soon as we left the house so I went searching for a dry parking spot upon reaching the Phinney Neighborhood Center. I thought I found one under the stairs (and proudly took a picture of it), but I would have been better off leaving the bike exposed once the rain stopped and the dripping started. However, I saw a legitimately dry spot deeper under the stairs so provided I can squeeze my way back there, we’ll be fine next week.
