The Early Birds Caught Worms
This year's edition of Cycle Oregon's week ride sold out in 40 min.
The route announcement "party" was streamed, and registration opened at midnight (EST). Glad we decided to stay up and not wait until this morning.
This year's route includes a climb up to Crater Lake and the option to circle the rim road twice for the masochists among us. I climbed up to Crater Lake (albeit via a different route) and circled the rim during CO '07. The GF has never been, so we will at least go up to the rim. Whether we'll circle the lake is TBD. If you do every option during the tour, you will end up with 40,000' of climbing. Yikes.
