Since it didn't rain today...

Nice days have been a little scarce lately, so when the weather forecast indicated that today was going to be nice, I knew what to do: RIDE.

The ride wasn't epic or long, but it was fun and it got Suzy the SV and me out for some much needed miles. Starting in Klickitat, to The Dalles, onto HWY 30 to the Rowena Loops, to Hood River, across the toll bridge, to Hatts in Bingen for some non-ethanol premium, to Old Highway 8 (by Rowland Lake), to Canyon Road, up to Klickitat-Appleton Road, then home. 81.5 miles.

I was surprised at the lack of leaves on the roads; overall traction was not an issue, but the pavement was wet in the shadows. I was reminded that it's more fun to ride when it's warm and that it's time to look in the closet for the warmer riding gear to use for the next few months.

Ride while you can.

Great! I did almost that same ride last Saturday. Got fogged in on 142 coming down the hill then went through the mud pit at the bridge, or soon to be bridge. Lol

Hope to get a few more rides in before it snows!

I haven't gone over the "mud-pit bridge to be" area once they started making a mess. I've been close by and heard an incredible amount of noise, so they must be doing something besides making mud.
