He Did It!
Dennis did it - he rode his bicycle 105 miles from Beaverton to Pacific City on Saturday! The ride was uneventful for Dennis and his partner Matt. No flat tires, no mechanical problems, no wrecks.
They rolled into the finish at about 4:20 and we were so excited, all I managed was a single blurry photo:
Here's the stats:
Miles: 105.40 from the Beaverton Transit Center to Pacific City
Total time, including stops: 10:03:06
Total time, excluding stops: 8:26:59
Average Speed: 14.3 mph
Total ft ascended: 3488

Weather: Despite the forecast of rain, it was beautiful and sunny.
Best things about the ride: beautiful weather, beautiful scenery, completed it!
Worst thing on the ride: The bee that landed in Matt's helmet and stung him
