Rode to where NWTR was happening at Timber Ridge School. Biketopia was there playing music. Strong headwind to Albany. No wind on return via Riverside. Big party happening on the river front when I got to Corvallis.
Probably the lowest milage June since I started riding. Well not quite, but low, and no doubt I'll pay for it on Loop Tour next week.
More narrow steep streets until you get down to B street, then it's flat.
After over a month of dry weather it rained. Not as cold as last year though. I finished, and not last, but it was hard. Might be my last time doing the full century.
Started at 8. Great ride
Straight up Tum Tum. Robert wanted to take us to Thompson Lake but the road in was clearly marked "private logging road, no public access". We decided not to go.
Instead we kept going up Tum Tum looking for the C2C trail, which we found right in the middle of a new clearcut. We continued up to the Woods Creek trailhead.
Sunny and warm all day. We took the Wheatland ferry and rode into Salem on the west side of the river. We took a nice bike path/bridge attached to highway 22 back across into River Park. We then discovered this amazing new pedestrian/bicycle bridge which tied into the trail system from Mento Park. Then back on River Road to Independence. This rout was 10 miles shorter than the way we came. We even picked up Robert who road out to meet us.
