Friday, August 2nd…
I’ll be in NE Oregon and SE Washington from the 3rd-10th of August. My sister convinced me to participate in the Oregon Bicycle Ride. It’s a 7 day road cycling tour; very similar to Cycle Oregon. But someone has decided it’ll happen in the heat of summer. I’m extremely pleased we don’t have a heat wave coming up this next week in the Pacific Northwest. The first day looks like this:
I’ve been riding quite a bit to train; we’ll see how it goes. Looks like about 350 miles of riding in 5 days (2 days off) from Athena to Joseph, then to Lewiston, Dayton, and back to Athena. That’s a lot of sweat. I should come back either quite fit or very tired, or possibly both.
No blog postings until the 12th. But feel free to discuss weather below.
