It's been 3 years since we participated in the best week-long bicycle ride in the country - Cycle Oregon, so we decided to commit to doing it again this year. The ride is in September, and the route will be announced at the Big Kick-off Party February 8, at the Nike campus in Beaverton. We're in the process of talking some our friends into doing it with us, which will it even more fun.
I participated in this ride in 1988, 1992, 2006, and 2007 - in various stages of fitness. This year will be a first - one of my boys will be doing it with us. Of course, he's more fit than I've ever been or ever will be. Achieving the goal of riding at least 1000 miles this summer before the big event will make the ride much more enjoyable. Now the question is, which bike to ride?
The Oregon landscape is absolutely gorgeous. I try to photograph as I ride (it's not a race, you know), and have set up albums on my picturetrail sites: 2006 and 2007.
