Thanks to all who came.

A bit of damp start, but the 'liquid sunshine' was gone by 8AM and pretty much sunny for the rest of the day.

Pretty much zero wind all day, which is somewhat unusual along the Oregon coast.

In reply to "umatillarider", no other rides by our club, but quite a few out in the valley and the Portland area.

Saturday morning bikes shop ride most Saturday's, weather permitting.
