I put on a lot of miles this year. Here are some of the highlights.
On the bike each day by 7:30, all kinds of weather, and loving it.
For 2 weekends in June the old road up McKenzie pass was open to bicycles but closed to cars. It was a clear warm day when I did it. There were least a hundred riders doing the climb that day.
My first organized century in the Willamette Valley. Very well organized and a very fast pace.
As the days were at there longest I kept thinking about how far I could go if I got out early and rode all day. This didn't take all of the daylight hours but was still my longest ride ever. This is the Santiam River.
Its mandatory to do Mary's Peak at least once a year. Got some nice pictures on this ride.
This was the big one. Only 7 days of riding but through some great country and over five mountain passes.
Exploring the forest up Woods Creek road
I did several rides on the Mountain Trucker in September up Woods Creek Road, looking for a back roads route to the coast. I didn't get all the way but had some great rides.
It was fun to discover a back woods route to Kings Valley. Much more enjoyable than having to ride on Highway 20.
