The morning ritual of the maps…. feels weird to be collecting them as late as 1030am. Why do I feel nervous?
UPDATE. A fabulous 46 mile ride to the staging area. Out of The Dalles on a beautiful road called the Rowena Crest Highway with incredible views of the Columbia River. Simply amazing.
Then we crossed over the Columbia on the confusingly named Hood River bridge – and then travelled on the WA side to the Bridge of the Gods – and crossed back over to OR.
We are now parked in a staging area waiting the go – to ride back over to WA side and then to the Finish Line.
