Rain, rain, and more rain. 3 people showed up for the ride, 1 went home, and 2 did a short ride in the rain.
After a week or more of snow, ice, and freezing rain, we finally got a sunny cold day. Took 99W to Airport west to Peterson to Ervin and over the ridge to Decker road and Hwy 34 back to Philomath.
Actually on the 3rd but I'm testing to see if my log stats picks up the 1st.
Last ride of the year and a good one it was, both the ride and the year. Cold but not freezing. This ride puts me over 7100 miles for the year. Retirement has its perks.
Up Jackson Creek and down Oak Creek. I think this was the only gravel ride I've done this Fall/Winter. Nice day but cold north wind. My toes got cold. Also first serious climb since I hurt my knee in November. I did fine but I certainly can feel some pain in the knee. It does not seem to affect my power output, but it doesn't bode well for my upcoming New Zealand tour in just a month.
