RUSA permanent #36

This is a great route which is frequently offered by Oregon Randonneurs, but is also available anytime as a permanent. I took advantage of a beautiful day in Oregon to ride this wonderful route one more time!

Overlooking the Columbia River at Rest Stop #2

This year I had a couple of my riding buddies from Utah come out to join me on this event, Lasse and Craig from Cedar City. This years ride followed Marine Drive along the Columbia River before turning onto the Columbia River Historic Highway. We chose the 80 mile route this year and avoided some of the major climbing but we still had a pretty stiff hill to conquer on Louden Road (at 12% plus). Descending on Larch Mountain Road brought us to our spectacular rest stop and viewpoint shown above, after which we descended back to the Sandy River. A little more route finding brought us to the Springwater Corridor we followed back through town. The weather started a little cool but warmed to the mid-70’s by noon. Winds were pretty light but always seemed in our face whichever way we turned.

This is my seventh participation in the Grand Tour double century and it’s various distances. I have done the 125 mile distance once, the 300 mile distance twice and the 200 mile distance four times now. It is an enjoyable route in-spite of the many traffic lights and heavy traffic in some sections.

This year is my 13th participation in this event which apparently makes it my favorite double century! I first did this ride in the late 1980’s before it was part of the California Triple Crown series. This year was one of my better Davis rides, in spite of the weather.

Corona-300a

This would be my first event of any real distance this year. I signed up for it in part because I really like the route, but also because it fit in well with my availability. Still, doing nearly 200 miles in one day with no mileage base was going to be a challenge.
