For Better or Worse

For better or worse, I'm leaving in the morning to participate in Cycle Oregon's 20th anniversary, along with 2000 other bicyclists. If you don't hear from me again, it means I will have expired somewhere along the route.

My lycra shorts are nearly dry and ready to pack. If you've never spent much time in the saddle, you'll know it's not for the fashion statement, but out of necessity, that bicyclists wear lycra.

I did manage to ride 50 miles last week, then hiked Saddle Mountain with some friends. And I rode 23 miles this week. While it's not nearly enough, it'll help.

Here's the top of Saddle Mountain, where we ate our picnic lunch. My friends Allison and Autumn are in the corner of the photo. The vista was beautiful.
