|Tim starts early|
Tradition cares not if it rains, or shines. Since the days of Jay Beattie and GB Cyclisme's humble beginnings at PSU, the sprint to the "stop sign ahead"
sign after the bridge off Fairmont, has been ferocious.
Rides from the East Bank of the Willamette River offer progressive stages of developing drama.
|Randy, Fergus take the sprint!|
From the Hawthorne
bridge to the edge of the Tualiti Mountain Range, through the core of the city is like a climb in Manhattan.
|Tony, Berg and |
Ferg climb steep.
After Portland State University, the ride becomes a tour in The Alps.
By the time they reach the descent into the little valley of SW Upper,
the steep climb out demands more than anyone thought they brought.
