Yah, we got that, too -- next Saturday. https://pdxwnbr.org/ Remind me to ride west. I'm tired of weird.

I was creeping along on tired legs today because I wiped myself out riding up Mt. Bachelor on Friday. http://www.glitteranddust.com/wp-con...54-768x768.jpg

Central Oregon is usually dry this time of year, but not on Friday -- rain and sleet at the top. I was so hypothermic on the way down, I practically passed out -- or whatever you call it when your brain freezes and you start seeing Oprah at the end of a tunnel of light with coffee and doughnuts. I was starting to loose my grip on the bars and had to stop and gag down a Cliff bar in the rain. One of my top five miserable rides.

The sun was out in PDX today, and so were all the cyclists. It was like the Mayfly hatch or the return of the Monarch Butterflies with all the bright colored jerseys.

You need to move to a more affluent neighborhood. My goodness, these
poor people don't even have money to buy proper cycling attire.

I stow a rolled-up plastic "kitchen" garbage bag in my tool kit, with
arm and neck holes cut in it. Weighs perhaps 5g and takes up
essentially zero room. It's been years since I've used one, but it's
cheap insurance. Against hypothermia, not nudity, that is.

My head was freezing, so I would have had to put the bag over my head -- which some people have suggested I do in other contexts. Actually, though, I could have used the garbage bag as an additional layer beneath my Showers Pass (product placement) rain jacket. I would have worn long finger gloves, but I didn't pack a pair. I did not expect Juneuary in Bend and brought my rain jacket as a precaution.

The same thing happened to me once on Larch Mountain -- soaked to the bone and shivering so hard on the descent that I could hold on to my bars. I suppose a garbage bag might have helped then. My companions had more sophisticated equipment -- cell phones. They had married better, too, because their wives were willing to drive 30-40 miles to pick them up. I rode home, teeth chattering, doing my Captain Kirk impression . . . must . . . keep . . . riding.

Finally summer here. Yesterday 33C and 40-50km winds around Champlain
Islands in Vermont for a 100k ride. Cool wind off the lake made it
pretty nice and the hills were not horrible. Nothing to complain about.
