The ride was fun. It was irritating getting stuck behind slow people/pacelines. I was hauling ass whenever I got irritated. Dropped the hammer and was cruising at 26-28 mph at points passing pacelines. My friend would hop on pacelines to catch up to me.
So all in all, I'm faster on flats than my friend, but he punishes me on climbs that are > 4% grade (I weigh 195, he weighs 155). Next time I do StP I'll do it in one day to avoid slow people.
Here are some pictures from the ride/vacation.
Oregon is very scenic.
