Beginner Ride?
Hi! This is Craig, I ride a red 2005 Vstrom 650. I was on the Wheels and Wings and Hermiston breakfast rides so far. I'm looking to have a ride along some more interesting roads. Anyone in? I know it's late in the season but I hope it's warm enough to do something this weekend.
Any ideas? Open to suggestions.
Thanks!

Next two weekends are booked for me. 'Bikers with Box's' charity ride and 'Toy's for Tot's' the following weekend. Then I'm available. What about weekdays?

Okay. I'll just find a few things on my own if that's how it works out. No biggie. Weekdays are somewhat harder but I can take a half day now and then.

Notice that the wknd low temps for Ukiah are predicted ~20F, so if you do the
Ukiah / Heppner road I mentioned to you (it goes higher still) watch for frost in the shade.

Seems like a good route to me. Can't wait to find out about the weather.

Dan, you know this but here's chance to let others know --->

Main food places seem to close in Heppner for wknd.

across from gas station is a white cafe, always seems closed.
But left of it is a gift store / coffee shop that did a very good job
on brunch sandwiches, grilled, for a Saturday group I was riding with.
Everyone liked it. Very small. ~8 seats.

If clearly lunch or later, the nice atmosphere pub is open w/ average or better food.
On main drag more or less across from post office. Name ?; only one though.

During weekdays, the antique store on same side as gas station - one block toward town,
has a fun cafe, ice cream shop. Hidden. A favorite. ~20 seats.
But on Sat, the cook is off and they only have homemade pastries, ice cream...
