Multnomah Falls, Columbia Gorge, Oregon
Today is my last day home for a month. I’ll be touring on the Slipstream in the Northwest. I though of taking the Laptop with me but have decided against it. We will be traveling self contained and Bennett has a penchant for Savage Camping. I doubt that there will be a lot of spots to use it along the way plus I don’t need the extra weight. So, I will see you again in August.
The route starts in Seattle, slides down to Portland. Then follows the Columbia River to Walla Walla.
Here’s a great site that deserves a lot more traffic. It is Crankk.
It is a lot like Digg but just for cycling. A great place to get all of the latest cycling news and see what is happening in Cycling Blogs.
Gros Monde, Newfoundland
Riding in the mountains is a special joy. It is easy to see why Native Americans thought the Gods lived in the Mountains. There is a sense of awe that is sometimes almost overwhelming as you ride above the timberline with a breath taking view of a fearsome landscape above and below.
Riding from Ossipee to Dover, NH the other night I got a late start. We were running late coming home from the Montreal Bike Festival and I didn’t get started until 4:30 PM. It is about 50 miles and I knew it would be dark before I got home. But I love this ride and do it every chance I get.
It had been a dark day but this is a beautiful ride along historic Rt. 153 that straddles the New Hampshire and Maine border.
