A different kind of New Year's Day ride. Didn't go with the club. Went solo on the Ravn, but didn't head up into the woods. I went south and rode the mud at Willamette Park. Nice day although it rained pretty good on the way home.

2 Geezers rides. I’ve been laying off the bike as much as possible since going over 5k for the year. I need the recovery. But it was warmer and not raining today so I couldn’t resist one last ride for the second decade of the century. 

Finished the year 30 miles shy of last year’s total and I’m fine with that.

Cold but dry with some fog. Started out flat but ended with some serious climbing, Fox Hollow being the hardest. It was good to see some of my Rando friends again. This rice also put me over 5,000 miles for the year.

After a few days of freezing fog the sun came out and it got up to 50 degrees. 

After the hop farm I took Davidson (gravel) back over to Corvallis Road. Then Stapleton over to Helmick and back on 99.

Cold and foggy to start. Sun came out on 34 and it was nice and warm going up Decker. Back in the fog on the east side but it was lifting. Stopped at Hiatt Bakery. Then took the gravel on Peterson to Airport and again on 53rd.
