Pre-race routine:

I picked up my Packet the day of the ride at Chemeketa Community College. While waiting for the Tyler's I had one of the free waffles will be provided by Downtown Waffles.
Event warmup:

Since it was a group ride and not a race I did not warm-up.
  • 5h 20m 43s
  • 75 miles
  • 14.03 mile/hr

There was a hard headwind coming from the south. With the way the course laid out it was a problem thru the entire ride. It started raining at about mile 40 with it pouring for large sections. Of course the sun came out the last 5 miles. I am happy with the ride. I believe it was my first 50 plus mile ride since Monster Cookie in the spring.

Event comments:

There was basically no after party. I treated the chaffing, changed clothes and headed home. Tired and satisfied.

Course: I chose to ride the 75-mile route. It started and ended at Chemeketa Community College. The ride was a rolling terrain with some moderate hills. The traffic was low-volume roads past the farm fields of the Willamette Valley, through forested foothills. There was moderate traffic in the rural communities east of Salem. Both rest stops had food, water, sports drink, restrooms and friendly volunteers. The weather was warm with rain. The 75 mile route went thru Jefferson, Scio, and Stayton.
