This Space for Rent

Another trip to the well

Ripplebrook MLCM, again

Let nobody say that I’m not a person who will find an interesting route and ride it into the ground. Today I rode Portland-Ripplebrook-Portland for the seventh time this year, and it was just as lovely as the last six times I rode it :-)

I didn’t get as much time to admire the view, though, because this time around I rode it in 8h38 without even pushing myself too hard (And this time includes the ~15 minutes it took me to deal with a flat tire after I ran over a disintegrated beer bottle.)

I’ve still not found that sub-8 200k, but I can smell it now.
