Left Canyon City and immediately started climbing at a very gentle grade. We slowly made our way out of the valley and up into the trees.
Testing various loaded configurations before loop tour.
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
