Detering Orchard

Saturday, October 8, 2011
Leader: Patricia Esch
Bike: 28 miles, 20 ft (Moderate)

Six riders met for an easy ride, read flat, north through bucolic Coburg and up the Willamette Valley to Detering Orchard. Twenty-eight miles of quiet countryside, except for some road traffic. Saturday was the magic day for apple cobbler and ice cream at Detering's Fall Festival, so there were lots of people, pumpkins and apples of all kinds. We enjoyed people watching (just how do you put long, leafy corn stalks into your car?) as we ate our lunch and indulged in one or more servings of dessert. The weather was cool with some sun and the breeze at our backs, so perfect for our return.

Members: Patricia Esch, Barbara Bruns, Moshe Rapaport, Don Kindt, Anne Bonine. Nonmembers: Lonnie Hinde.
