Was that a "pretty please, with sugar"?
What a beautiful morning for a ride in the rolling hills around Eugene, sunny, cool at the start, riders eager for a great day. There were 310 riders, about half did the century, the rest the metric. I drove the SAG most of the day, but I also moved road signs, picked up food to take to the lunch stop, and counted money to take to the bank.
The wind kicked up in the afternoon, so there were places where the wind was in the rider's faces, but they are tough, and came to the finish smiling.
This is such a nice century ride, Oregon at it's finest! If you've never cycled in the Eugene area, put this event on your list for next year, I know you'll enjoy it. If you can't wait a year, let me know and come down to Eugene for your own personal tour with a Shifty rider.
