Well, we're riding more regularly now and have been for the last couple of months. We certainly can't use the excuse that there's no place to ride. Here's some pictures from a ride out our door. At twenty five miles with a bit of climbing, it's a bit long to be quotidian, but short enough to do a couple of times a week.
A couple of miles of riding on Hwy 138 takes us over a ridge, and puts us in the valley of the North Umpqua river. There's a bit of flat land in the river valley at this point, with some nice farms; the hills in the background are on the other bank, rising to Mt. Scott and four thousand something feet.
