To Clearwater Boat Ramp 15Jun2022

Working on my distance instead of hills, I decided to bike out to Springfield. It has been raining… STILL. It wasn’t raining on this day (yet), so it was a good day to ride.

Crossing one of the bridges near the University of Oregon, I noticed how full the rivers are.

This water is usually low around this time, and we can see balanced river rocks that people enjoy stacking. Not right now though!

Closer to the Clearwater boat ramp, it was pretty wet.

This was closed. Technically.

It was practically warm in the sunshine, so I took a little break and ate a fruit bar.

I was hoping to get a better video, but it turns out that it’s also important to steer.

I headed back through the Doris Ranch area.

Even Alton Baker Park has flooded areas. No biking there!

On the way home, I took a route that takes me by the freeway. It’s pretty loud! It’s not a long stretch though, so it’s ok.

This was a very nice ride. I tried to take some of the time pressure out of it by taking a snack break. I have a riding event coming up soon, and it’s longer. I hope I can do the distance! It also has a big hill… Wish me luck!

Distance: 26.4 miles; Elevation: 393 feet

It all started with my friend, Christine. She called me a Viking. It's because I like endurance sports as well as lifting heavy things. Plus, my heritage includes Norwegians... It struck a chord somewhere deep down. I suddenly liked the idea of not having to be a small, slender person. I could be strong and thick. I could have mass. I don't want to be overweight or obese, mind you. I just don't like trying to be a waif when that is very likely unattainable to me. I have muscle (under this fat). I like being strong. So this is my journey of becoming more fit and liking the fact that I will never, NEVER weigh 120 pounds.
