A day by day photo essay of a SAG supported tour from Portland to Ontario. The 3 riders were Don Spencer (leader), Mike Faden, myself and Brian Hammer for a piece of the Unity to Ontario leg while providing SAG support. The route started through the Gorge with 3 short intervals on I-84 where no other access was possible and in one case to avoid climbing over the Women's Forum route on the old highway. Day 1 went from PDX to Deschutes State park east of the Dalles (97 miles, 4,183' climbing, 16.6 mph avg, tailwind). Day 2 traveled from Deschutes state park to Fossil (73 miles, 6,900' climbing, 12.7 mph avg, hot!). Day 3 went from Fossil to Clyde Holliday State park near Mt. Vernon (93 miles, 3,700' climbing, 17.3 mph avg), Day 4 went from Clyde Holliday to Unity (57 miles, 4,050' climbing, Head wind last few miles). The last day went from Unity to Ontario 84 miles, 1,630' climbing, 17.5 avg with >18 mph from Unity to Vail with strong tailwind). I carried my Leica for all of the trip shooting B&W but unfortunately it developed shutter problems almost immediately (after several hundred trouble free rolls who would guess issues would crop up?). The gallery contains primarily a salvage effort of the results which are in a lot of cases a testimony to Leica engineering. It's now at the shop for a CLA which it has never had since I have owned it... a real testimony to robust engineering. The tour went extremly well with the weather cooperating amazingly well for eastern Oregon giving no extreme heat (most days were 80 degrees as a high) and no rain during the day. We all settled into a tour 'mode' almost immediately not feeling like fast pacelines were necessary or even desirable. The only exception to that rule was the 30 or so miles outside of Vale which were flat, straight and had fantastic tailwinds. Who could resist?? Jerry Smith asked me for a one word description the following week and the best one I could think of was fabulous. For me it was one of those bucket list items that are impossible to say no to and proved to be all I hoped it would.
