The Oregon Stampede is invariably a long day in the saddle. Our bud, Dan, has done a very good job of the run down and run up to the ride over on his blog: Benedicto. Our experience, while not necessarily mirroring his, is similar enough that we can skip the great details that may or may not make this unique.
Some details though:
- David did it on a single speed (again) but this time swore he wouldn’t repeat that again.
- There was an earwig problem at the campsite.
- Richard got a flat within the first five miles causing some anxiety that can be traced back to last year
- At least outside is free
