457 Miles and 7 Days Later — The Big Finish
457 miles and seven days later, Cycle Oregon riders are rolling back into Elgin. Today’s ride was the toughest of the tour, but after so much time in the saddle, most seemed more than up for the challenge.
Congratulations to all finishers (and to all starters). This year’s ride was a tough one. A special shout out to all first-timers and my fellow back-of-the-packers. You all ROCK!
Thanks to everyone for making Cycle Oregon 2010 one to remember. Parting is sweet sorrow. See you in a few months at the 2011 kickoff party (February 8). Have a safe trip home and please take time to share your photos on the Cycle Oregon 2010 flickr group.
