  • Mood:



Less than a week to go, and I join 8000 other riders this weekend (the 9th and 10th) on a trip from the University of Washington campus in Seattle to Holladay park in Portland Oregon. I think I will break fast at 5AM and then start the ride at 6AM.

The stats:

  • Total distance (miles) 202.25 (actually 210 when you count riding to lodging)
  • Uphill distance (miles) 30.87
  • Uphill altitude (feet) 1,951
  • Maximum altitude (feet) 463
  • In that time I will consume 20 sandwiches, 20 mocha-chocolate brownies, 5 gallons of water (with electrolytes) and still lose weight. Fortunately, there are several places to chow down along the way.

    This might be a wet ride with the weekend forecast predicting a chance of showers along the route.

    Wishing for a smooth ride and no rain, just a gentle shower to knock off the salt.
