Yay! The smoke is gone. The crazy high temps are gone. Tommorow looks
perfect for some bike riding on really beautiful hills. Giro PDX is
on....I mean cancelled. I’ll have an aid staion half way through the route
with food and water. And as usual, the penultimate summit of Cook’s Butte
will be protected by the shrine of the Madonna del Ghisallo while she
shares her refreshments.
I might make one small route tweak after pre-riding it today. So check the
facebook event page for updates. This will be my last post here. See
