Monday Funday

I went out for a nice road ride with a couple of the boys from the Yakima team yesterday. There had been talk of 100 miles, but the reality of the route combined with some shaky legs and the threat of pissing-down rain shortened the ride to a mere 100 kilometers instead.

Great roads and minimal traffic on the route mean I will revisit and extend this course. Right around 5000 feet of climbing, and that with the bailout option for the last 10 miles. I suspect this could be a 100 mile route with 10,000 feet of climbing. Oregon, I (heart) you!

So, what was the weather like? Two hours of cool and overcast followed by two hours of steadily dropping temps and steadily increasing rain. The last 10 miles were flat, but the price for that was lots of cold rain and riding along a major truck route. That is to say, lots of road spray and swerving semi rigs. Love it!

Rumor has it that there will be a trip to Eugene/Oakridge later this week, and perhaps some XC racing over the weekend. Thinking long range, another trip in/over/through Moab/Fruita/SLC/Boise is in the works. I just can't get enough of that desert riding...
