Day 14 - Sunny and warm

Broke camp fairly early. I knew it would be a long day. It was still cool but it was shaoing up to be very nice. Turned out to be the warmest day of the tour. This being Sunday the cafe in Lorane was closed, but the store was open, so I stopped for second breakfast. I stopped again in Crow for more ice tea, and then took a break at a park in Veneta. I took another break at the park in Monroe and had lunch. Then is was just keep on riding until I got home. That nice north wind that had got my tour off to such an easy start was now in my face, but it was not as strong. The valley and the view of the coast range was beautiful and it felt good to be getting home on such a nice day.

And then I was home, and another short, but challenging tour came to an end. Perfect weather, scenic roads, and good friends. AllĀ bike tours should be this good.Ā
