You'll have to count me out, it sounds like a fun ride. But 20Mph Sustained winds seems a little daunting to me and would probably make for a less fun and more strenuous ride for me, from my experience of riding in heavy winds.

Weather is looking favorable for Saturday, the 30th. Who's all meeting for SMC and a ride?

I'm in for both, no matter how much coffee or how much riding.

In.

I'm thinking Rock Creek Canyon, Old Lady Canyon, grab lunch at the Bluebird, back through Rock Creek Canyon and home through Centerville.

Easy day, maybe 160 miles, look at the wildflowers and wave to the Gendarmes....

Sounds good to me. I like that area the roads are good up in there too, a little sketchy in some places. I took a cougar up in that area (was hunting Coyote but came across a cougar instead and had a tag) , good small game hunting area
BTW, I'll be rocking the Ghost S Video Camera and throwing some of the footage up on my you tube channel if no one has any objections.

Rock Creek Canyon, Old Lady Canyon?

Maybe I've ridden those areas before, but didn't know the names. Sounds like an interesting change of pace.

I seem to recall that the Bluebird takes cash only, no cards. So bring some Federal Reserve Notes or be ready to wash dishes.

Yes, nice ride for some good burgers. You (SK), John & Rock Dodger missed some great late ride corners into Lyle.

Agreed. It was a good plan (except for that damn deer )!

I'm sorry I'm going to miss this week's ride. Hope you all have a fantastic and safe SMC and ride.

You guys are too kind, thank you.

I propose that we step it up a notch for tomorrow (5/7) and go back into the Blue Mountains:

KSU at The Dalles SMC at 0930. > Wasco > Condon (gas) > Heppner > OR 74 > Nye Junction > US 395 > Ukiah (gas) > FSR 53 > Heppner > Ruggs > OR 207 > Spray (gas) > OR 219 > Fossil (top off the tanks; late lunch at RJ's) > OR 218 (of course) > Shaniko > Shearers > The Dalles. Maybe 400 miles....

Supposed to be sunny and in the eighties, without too much wind. Looking forward to it.

[Queue the howls of protest]

Thanks, and good riding to you all,

Quixote
