Packing up for the ride. I brought a blanket, knitting and a bag full of things to do and read.
Antares gives a final inspection to the bike.
Matt unloads from the car.
The ride cue sheet.
Matt gets ready to go.
Here is the start.
And he's off!
Time passes. I go to Denny's for breakfast (because I couldn't find anything else in Canby) stop by Fred Meyer and purchase bins for storage for the back of the car. I fill up the gas tank and get the car washed and it's still only 9am. So I hung out in a park until 10, when the Canby library opened. I poked around there and then drove back to the race site, where I napped and read in the back of the car until I thought Matt would be done. Then I sat by the finish line and kept an eye out for his arrival.
Sadly, I missed the big finish. He suddenly loomed before me. So I had him pose.
After stowing his bike and changing his shirt, Matt got his food which was delicious. Because after riding 60+ miles everything is delicious.
He was also a fan of the root beer floats and had two of those.
It was a good bike ride. Thanks to the Ride to Remember.
