Rubber to the Road Bike Ride

This morning Dave and I woke up to rain.  We were pretty disappointed because we wanted to go on a bike ride but we waited the morning out and enjoyed some coffee.  We were rewarded with somewhat clear skies and decided to go for it.  We chose to do the Rubber to the Road route – http://www.rubbertotheroad.com/?p=649 . Basically it was a 35 mile bike ride since we had to travel to get to the path.  Sounds fine right?  I have neglected to tell you that it has a 2247 elevation gain with the highest point being at 1207 feet.  Here’s a picture of Dave on the St. John’s Bridge – we hadn’t reach the highest hills yet:

After this point it was nothing but uphill for the next miles – not sure how many but it felt like forever.  The great part of this ride was that it was through Forest Park which is a park in Portland with 100’s of miles of trails and is gorgeous – as long as you are okay with the hills.  Here’s some pictures of me about halfway through the hills:

It was an amazing ride that left us exhausted but satisfied:)  Just another amazing weekend in Portland!
