I understand this here is the Pacific NW forum. Wow! Truly, bikeforums has it all!
I'm Adam, I live out in the sticks surrounding Corvallis, Oregon. As soon as I get my bike rejiggered for touring, I'm going to be doing some training around these here parts..
For those of you who live in the area, I'm hoping to find a few good roads to go ~45 miles one way, turn around and come back (or go in a loop), and I wonder if you fellows have any thoughts on the subject?
I was thinking I'd just go back and forth from Corvallis to Eugene on 99 or Peoria Rd (maybe down on P and back on 99), but thats all rather flat...though the wind can be pretty brutal on the return trip.
Okay, back to work (painting!)
thanks for your help
