    That looks like great biking country! Especially if your freewheel runs 12-12-12-13-13-13.

    I've ridden along that bike path! It can be a log stretch if the wind is blowing.

    Small world... The wind was indeed making it quite an exercise, but the way back was a lot of fun!

    The best news I could have hoped for- out of the splint, no cast, still wearing the sling. He wants me to move the joints enough to regain range of motion (bending at the elbow is still pretty good, twisting not so much). However, NO lifting with the right arm for six weeks (counting from last Sunday), no load bearing, no cycling. The orthopedic and his nurse both ride, so that was cool. In fact, the nurse has had the same injury. As of right now, I'm typing with both hands, but still can't use my right hand on the mouse. Weird.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Excellent! So go move! But don't twist.

    Inded it is.
    Up until about 6 years ago, I used to spend 6+ weeks a year working at our company's headquarters in Hoofddorp. One of my favorite areas to ride was around Noordwijk down towards Scheveningen.

    Beautiful weather here in the PNW and I have 3 day weekend and the wife is gone till Sunday afternoon.

    Hmm just what shall I do?


    Today I drove down to the small town of Kid Valley and rode the "Tour D Blast' route to Mt St. Helens. This is an out n back route on a very nice roadway which follows the Toutle River eastward to the Mountain. There was lots of climbing along the way

    The roadway was put in after the eruption in 1980 and it is lightly used. Only a few tourists in cars and a few logging trucks were seen today. Here is a view of the mountain as you descend to Coldwater Lake

    The road was gated, closed to traffic for the final 9 mile climb up to Johnston Ridge. There was not another soul seen or heard.

    I had a light lunch at the top
    ]
    Then began the long descent back. If there were other people around I would have bombed this descent but being alone, you have a very different mindset. More cautious and deliberate. There is no one here to help you if you get into trouble so easy does it. I went slow and admired the views.

    Amazing views, northbend...simply amazing! Thanks for sharing. I've been off the bike for 2 weeks due to an injury. These ride pics are uplifting.

    Nice pics, all. We don't have mountains quite like that here in the northeast. We do have short, steep hills however. Lots of short, steep hills scattered about everywhere.

    We had an extensive music practice this morning for a performance of a complex piece tomorrow morning, so today's ride got a late start. A bit under 30 miles on the tandem. Cool, dry air blowing out of the northwest. Not a cloud in the sky, literally. Lots of bikes though. No pics.

    Some nice pics in this thread! I rode around the bay again, met some nice people and got a few compliments on the bike. The wind was blowing hard out of the south, so was able to flat haul arse up the Silver Strand bike path. Very exhilarating!

    Yesterday I took a short ride along the Williamette river along the Springwater Corridor to Sellwood and then this morning a friend and I rode past Sellwood and out 10 miles to Powell Butte where you are rewarded with a splendid view of Mt.Hood.

    With temperatures in the low 70's and bright sunny skies it was an excellent ride... had a headwind on the gentle climb out and a tailwind on the way back so we really cranked it up.

    Have been riding my 1954 Raleigh Sports and it is such a fine choice for rides like this.

    Got in a good 3 hr mtb ride today on a new loop with a good hour of steady climbing at the start. Got steep enough in one spot I had to stop and let the heart rate get back under control and then kept going. 75 degrees in the valley at the start and probably 8-10 degrees cooler at the top of the ridge. Even got into a couple patches of snow on the 3 mile descent but was able to get through them fairly easily. The hands were pretty tired on the descent as it's fairly steep with loose gravel. The legs are heavy but the mind is happy. A great day.

    The starting point off the pavement - took a good hour to reach the top of the ridge way in the background. It was some relentless climbing with no breaks.



    A quick break at a cattle gate to open and close it:



    Finally made it to the top:



    A little marshy spot that I found refreshing since everything else was so dry:



    I see this opening in the rocks from the road way down below in the bottom and finally made it up to it. Quite spectacular.



    Looking west toward the fire damage from last fall:

    Got a ride in early today, I had to go to a memorial service for a childhood friend in this afternoon, I'm tired physically and emotionally tonight. I will miss her.


    Now, for the living, I rode the upper and lower Snoqualmie Valleys. With some good friends.
    [
    Huge numbers of cyclists out today! Kinda felt like an off the leash dog park for cyclists out there.
    We did some of this

    And some of that

    Sorry no pics but I finally got out on the Guerciotti and not to mention after about two month of not riding. Been dealing with some health issues but feeling good lately physically and mentally so I put down just a few miles but it felt good. I may head back out tomorrow morning just to knock some more cobwebs off and get the juices flowing. It's been beautiful the past two month and the past two almost three weeks it's been in the 80's everyday. Not used to this weather around this time of the year.
