Cold fog but a hardy group of riders showed up to wish me a Bon Voyage. Next week New Zealand.

Cold kept most of the Tenners away. 25 at the start, but bright and sunny. Slight north wind proved to be very cold  on the way back. Cold, cold ride.

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.

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.

Robert's birthday ride. Once again the rain did not materialize. Mostly sunny but cold.
