Tour of Washington: Done!
I haven't posted much lately. I've been too busy riding!
My wife and I just got back to California from our Pacific Northwest cycling vacation.
Bracketed by our overnights in Ashland Oregon, and the nice rides in the nearby hills, we went on a six-day Cycle Washington trip run by Adventure Cycling.
We joined 60 others in a ride fest camping trip. I won't bore you with all the details, but basically we rode every day, usually around 6o miles, but 98 on one day. We lived in our tents that were transported by Adventure Cycling. We ate like kings. The ride was catered by a hard working genius woman who's been doing this for years. Every night was a delight.
The riding was grand, and the scenery was.... well, if it was in a movie you'd have said "Overdone. Not realistic." Really. It was amazing.
I wore a bunch of my cool jerseys, but the 50 Forum one got by far the most interest and comment. Maybe we'll get some new visitors!
Headed to Washington Pass

Tricia, on her birthday, right as she hits her birthday mileage!
One day, when we only had a few miles to go, we stopped at a winery. I was quite a hit for carrying two bottles back to camp in my jersey pockets.
