    dark morning looked like rain the sun broke out about 2pm on this ride of 65 miles, 3 of us went along and enjoyed the almost too green scenery some 90 miles to our north. the rain did the land good.

    only about 150 riders and nearly 0 vehicles to hassle us, a wonderful mellow ride with one hill of about 4-5 % and 3 miles

    Cool pics nonetheless, Erich! Gotta love the Northwest. Good to see you are getting some nice weather. Seattle is still stuck in March.

    it only cleared in the afternoon Matt since the Umpqua valley is around 90 miles to our north we too are stuck in the slop, it's about ready to dump in an hour here off the coast, let's just say we are tired of it......

    too bad I just can't get my friends pics to enlarge without losing all the pixels

    Cool pics Erich! I just picked up a 18-speed Huffy to replace the 15-speed Magna I had. Graduated from 24" to 26" and I'm loving it! Only do recreational riding - about 3 miles every night about the towns here. You guys look like you have great fun on those rides and the scenery must be awesome!

    very pastoral Guys. the temps were around 65F even with the sun out a bit breezy, it should of been 80F plus. As mentioned everything was a gorgeous shade of green

    congrats on the new bike those extra larger gears come in so handy, re: why I made the big cost committment to a new hot rod now I do not feel like I am straining doing the 15-16 % grades/hills in our area like before

    heck yes ! riding west of here to the Coast going through that range of insanity and then 100 miles to my east a wild ride or 12 into the Cascades during the heat of the summer when the higher air is cooler. Just had a nitro cancer treatment this morn so I feel like H*** warmed over, too bad as the sun is out but 20mph winds from the south which suck, would of been on the bike
