Lowlights were Polly getting a flat, changing it in the rain, and, as we were setting off, maybe 5 feet from there, Mimi had a flat. Also one of the riders hit a cement pole used to block traffic on the bike path, totally crunching his carbon fiber bike and somersaulting over the handlebars. Fortunately, he is OK and after getting checked out at the Portland hospital he went and bought himself a new bike...and helmet. "The Resort," where we stayed, was crawling with kids going to ski camp at Mt. Hood - an odd contrast to our bike riding.
Dinner was at funky spot, The ZigZag Inn - lots of references, but no papers for sale.
