Hit by a dinosaur on my ride

Today I rode 7.69 miles for a total of 51.4 miles so far this month.

On my ride today I rode so hard and fast that I went back in time and was run over by a dinosaur.... and now with photographic proof:



Bless you all, and may you always be motivated to ride.

Dave

Thank you,
This is the route and specs of the ride Bike Ride Profile | 8 miles near Boardman | Times and Records | Strava I was so close to having 50 miles ridden this month I had to get out today to finish that mileage. Next month maybe I get 55 or 60 miles. I try to ride three times a week, but sometimes life interferes and I only get two rides in for the week. I miss it when I can't ride.

Nice pic, I have a feeling I may run into a few at a charity ride in November named "Dino Dash".... I hope I'm lucky enough to see one as well.

But I want to quit my day job <pout>.

I have had this in my head ever since I rode by it the first time. So this time I whipped out my cell phone and took the photo while I was cooling down before a final bit to ride home.

Is that a Sinclair station? I remember when they were in the Northeast.

Yes, that is a Sinclair station. It used to be a Shell, but the oil company that owns it has changed to Sinclair. In the last two years more and more stations around here (The Dalles, Boardman, Lexington, Pendleton) are changing to Sinclair.

I like that they usually are the lowest price for fuel, and the fuel isn't crappy like AM PM fuel is (oh we don't have an AM PM station within 100miles of us... but in Boardman we don't have much withing 30-50 miles).

I have one of those very close to me.
