Saturday, August 18 was our 3rd Vine Ride and the second time we have done the 65 mile route. There was a slight change in the route and the 65 mile route which was 71 miles total last year was 67 this year and our average was less. I do remember that last year was not nearly as windy as this year.
Final time was 4 hours 53 minutes. Definitely made it under 5 hours but it was a shorter route overall. Oh well, I'm glad that we finished without any kind of problems. No flats, no cars trying to run us off the road or trucks loaded up with hay.
This Sunday is the Portland Century a new ride for us...I'm looking forward to another long ride!
