That's rather scary, Cliff, and you *might* want to work on your
situational awareness...unless the weather is truly awful, you're bound to
pass at least 2 and up to a few dozen bicycles on I 5 between where they
come in from I 205 north of Vancouver to Exit 100 just shy of Olympia where
they have to get off and take alternate routes until Everett.
