Greetings from Baker City, Oregon. Sunny, 80 degrees. Mmmm. That puts a smile on a Seattleite's face this spring, that's for sure!
Went to Bella's, met Beverly, had some San Pellegrino limonata and half a muffin and half a brownie whose ingredients sounded so wholesome that it seemed you'd be healthier if you ate them than if you didn't. There's a "fiber arts" (that means YARN to me) store newly located across the street from Bella's so I had to check that out while we waited for our ride buddies. Then it was off to preride the TT course. The hills aren't any lower and the chip seal isn't any smoother and the wind was a harbinger of the end of tomorrow's road race.
But, did I say it was sunny and 80? :) Perfect riding weather. Just about perfect weather, period.
