    CO Day 2

    Another terrific day. Maybe one turn all day!

    One rider got hit by a truck a block from the finish...his fault. I got buzzed by a cattle truck while doing 45 down a descent. I didn't like that.

    Our camping option in Burns was in an open straw field in the sun. I rode around town and found a nice couple that let me use their back yard. I have shade, electrical outlets for charging and use of their clothesline!! Americans at their best! I got 10 others to join me.....my good deed for the day.

    Back in the beer garden, again.... At mile 50 today I was trying to figure out if I drank too ,much last night or just needed a beer!!!

    These Oregons love their beer!!!

    Tomorrow I get to ride my age on my Bday. Doesn't get ,much better.
    Ride your Ride!!

    Fixed it for you.... the proper term is Oregonians and yes, beer is really popular in the state, which is why there are some many craft brewers.

    Happy Birthday, have another great ride today!!
