Rainy exploration of roads 200, 320, 420, and 400. My fenders collected too much debris and stopped me dead. Not good.

Started with the tenners but they all went short after waiting around for me to fix a flat. John, Tracy and I continued on to the ferry and then Jefferson - Albany.  Cold gray day and then the wind came up. Didn't rain though.

Another gorgeous autumn bike riding day. When I head out on a solo ride I don't necessarily have a set route. I just go where the road takes me. Wind, which never materialized, was supposed to be from the north so I started out that way. First stop was the coffee shop in Adair where I ran into friend Lon. Then I took the Beuna Vista ferry and rode up the east bank of the Willamette on the Scenic Bikeway though Ankeny Wildlife refuge and up through the vineyards. Riverside rolls with short climbs up from the river and fast sprints back down. Had lunch in Independence and then headed west to Helmick, which is now all smooth new pavement, and then Airlee to Berry Creek and Tampico. Wonderful way to close out October.

Cool crisp sunny autumn day. Colors were amazing. Some loose gravel on Hoskins road but otherwise excellent conditions.
