The 2013 Petal Pedal benefit ride for the Oregon Garden, starting in Silverton OR, with the scenery of Silver Falls State Park. Perfect morning weather – sunny, no wind, no jacket weather. Of course, that meant that things got toasty (mid 80’s) on the last hour of the ride. Inspire spoils me. Took off 60 minutes from my time in 2010! 62 mi, 3839 ft, 4 hrs 22 min. Started with a small group of TDC riders but the right-from-the-gate 5% climb left me with Dean and Mike Warner. We proceeded on our merry way. Good time to be had by all.
