My sixth Loop Tour in the books.
Everyone took the Elk City route and did fine on the gravel.
More capes, long miles, nice day.
Another nice day. Rain supposed to start tonigh.
Layover day in Astoria.
Followed an Oregon Randonneur route from McMinnville with nice rolling hills. Late second breakfast in Banks.
The BV Trail was harder than I expected. I probably wore myself out on the rolling hills, plus too heavy a meal in Banks, plus terrible rough pavement which really beat me up. Nice on the downhill side. Camping at Anderson part right on the trail in Vernonia
Nice start to LT19. Cloudy in the morning and then clearing throughout the day. Some headwind. Camping at Yamhill fairgrounds.
