This Space for Rent

A very special run of the Skyline-Vernonia 200km permanent

Wet cue sheet

And by “special”, I mean “wet,cold,and foggy.” Cold wet and foggy to the point where I ended up being completely soaked to the skin (the only thing between me and hypothermia was the couple of layers of wool I was wearing (backed by an (allegedly) rain-resistant windbreaker and a pair of nylon Nashbar +4s; Every time we stopped, I promptly started freezing, but it didn’t take much longer than a mile of riding to generate enough energy to warm myself right up) and where, if not for most of the 35 miles between Forest Grove and Vernonia, we spent essentially all of our time groping through rain and/or fog.

The amazing thing is that we finished the loop in < 13 hours.
