Views from the Cream Puff Pre-Ride
As I was staring up into the trees and looking out across the river, I had to remind myself to pay attention to the road since I was pedaling down Hwy 58. I took the scenic way back after my short pre-ride on the North Fork trail. There are more shades of green here in Westfir, OR than anywhere else I have been. The hillsides just ooze green and the humidity in the air adds to this oozing effect. Speaking of humidity, it is higher than any of the previous years I have been here for the Puff. The NWS says it is 72% but it feels higher to me. It also looks like we will get a little wet tomorrow but that does not matter. We are racing bikes and it will be glorious!
