Today's ride ...brrr!
I went on a long ride today taking Hwy 12 over to Yakima.
Really wanted to try Canyon Road from Selah to Ellensburg because I'd never been on it before.
It was a great ride and the roads were terrific, but, man, I should have layered up more! It think it was in the mid-30s when I began the ride this morning at 8 a.m. and even in Selah it was only 55 when I got there.
I don't have any heated gear so I was pretty chilled the whole first half of my ride. Altogether, my buddy and I logged about 350 miles on the ride.
On the way back, we decided to take Hwy 10 parallel to I-90 until it hits Cle Ellum. Didn't know the road was closed because of a bridge project. Anyway, there's a dirt and gravel road that you can take to get around the bridge being out, but it's pretty sketchy. We took it at about 20 mph.
Probably my last long ride of the year.
