This photo is from a ride around town earlier this year. The sun was setting and the camera was at just the right angle to catch the light and the front end of the bike. It was one of those happy accidents. I feel the photo has a nice warmth to it and inspires me to get out and ride my bike.
…So this weekend, the OR Randonneurs Bikenfest 200k is happening and I’m looking forward to logging a few more miles on what will likely be the last longer ride of the season (and my only official 200k this year, its been so busy). I rode in this area last year, the route changes from year to year, and it’s a great time to be on the east side of the Cascades. I’ll have a report back in a few day.
