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.
TRaining for mini-loop
Pre ride for loop tour. Unfortunately John went down and gashed his elbow.
Out to Philomath - Crow and then all the way to Monmouth highway on Kings Valley Road. Back Helmick and 99W. Nice day. North wind provided tailwind going home.
