Cottage Grove - King Estate - Creswell Bike Ride

July 3, 2008

It was a great day for a bike ride, mid 70s and partly cloudy. We started at Ray’s Food Place in Creswell and took Sears Road to Cottage Grove. From there we headed up and over the Cottage Grove-Lorane Rd hill, our first of three hard climbs. In Lorane we stopped for a delicious lunch at King Estate Winery. The winery is located at the top of a very steep hill but the views from the patio and the downhill afterwards made the climb worth every crank of the pedal. After lunch we tackled Hamm Rd, our last hill. Our reward was ice cream at Old Time Scoop in Creswell. Despite all the hills and the ever present headwind, we probably gained a couple of pounds from all the good food. That’s why we bike in the first place, isn’t it?

Riders were: Paul Garrick, Chris Hayward-Mayhew, Stewart Hoeg, Sandor Lau, Sam Miller, Pam Morris and Lyn Gilman-Garrick, leader.
