Today was a fun day. We rode 37 miles and now have a total of 543 miles. The ride today was through the Oregon Wine country from Roseburg to Ompqua and back. Not nearly as fancy or ostentatious as the Napa valley but pretty scenery and gentle rolling hills.
Tonight we are in Cottage Grove OR and plan a trip on a local bike route tomorrow that will cover about 35-36 miles again then on to Eugene where we will turn on our car and begin true bike touring again. Monday will be about 60 miles over the coast range to get to Florence on the coast then north from there.
Roseburg was an interesting town and Cottage Grove is on the Applegate Trail which was an alternate route for the Oregon Trail and went through the Willamette Valley.
Mary is feeling better today so whatever she had yesterday ws a very temporary episode. Sorry for no picture of the day today.
Weather is cooperating now. It was cloudy and overcast during our ride and slowly the sun came out. Temps have been in the mid sixties to low seventies which is perfect riding weather.
