Orchard Point

Friday, August 3, 2012
Leader: Patricia Esch
Bike: 25 miles, 100 ft (Easy)

The ride started out on the cool side, but the expectation was that it would get hot. Ten riders rode out the Fern Ridge Bike Path, enjoying the newest revamp of the path shortly after our start. The designers made the path curvy instead of straight. Very pleasant. We didn't see much wildlife along the way, but stopped and picked some wild blackberries. We ate lunch by the Fern Ridge Reservoir, some in the shade and some in the sun because the northerly breeze was cool. The strange object floating on the lake turned out to be a outhouse for the boaters so they wouldn't have to boat all the way back to the marina. Clever and practical. It definitely was getting hot on the ride back, so we were happy to arrive at our cars.

Members: Patricia Esch, Eric Swegles, Lana Lindstrom, Barbara Bruns, Judy Terry, Moshe Rapaport, Joe Sanders, Kathy Hoeg, Peggy Windle, Don Kindt.
