Cool cloudy morning. Bad truck traffic forced me to take Oak Grove and Scenic. Really didn’t need the hills so early in the ride. Took the ferry and WVSB through Ankeny refuge. Long way around Independence and Monmouth. Was going to go out Airlie to Berry Creek but my legs were dead and there were big dust clouds from the combines out that way, so back on 99 with a loop around old Adair.

Up Oak Creek down 612 to Lewisburg road and some other hilly roads.

Days are hot now  Jackson Creek gets the morning sun. From the Oak Creek side it was nice and shady all the way up

Still not recovered from riding Mary’s Peak last week. Easy meander through the ryegrass fields before they start combining and the air gets too dusty to ride. 

Beautiful warm morning.

Still not recovered from last Saturday's ride up Mary's Peak. Legs hurt to start but then started feeling better.

Warmer today, but still not too hot.
