Astoria, looking across the Columbia River to Washington.

We all departed down the Columbia River towards Newberg. I rode with Clay, Diane, and Fred about half the way. Somewhere outside of Portland and bunch of cyclists were stopped for a break. I stopped and asked them for some route suggestions to get to Newberg. One guy kept telling me I was 100 miles or more from the coast (I didn't want to go to the coast) and that I was lost (I was not lost), and another guy was helmet lecturing me, another guy was making fun of my cycling attire.

The arrogant cycling team left and I followed, keeping up on my fully loaded bike. Just down the road the route turned to a nice long uphill, which the weekend cycling team couldn't handle. I passed them, one by one. (Insert my verbal assault and heckling here) I looked back at the top and Team Arrogant wasn't even close.......

Finally, the days travels bring me to the home of Clayton, the BC Group leader, in Newberg Oregon.

It's over.
