This is hands down one of my favorite rides in the Portland area, and my last big solo training ride before the PDX > LAX ride. BoG is a 110+ mile loop through Washington and over the steel grate of the Bridge Of The Gods. On the way back you're treated to one of the most beautiful roads in Oregon, the Old Columbia River Highway. On this occasion I rode over something sharp and slashed both of my sidewalls, so the last 70 miles were done at a snail's pace. So I took the opportunity to grab these photos, eat a cheeseburger, and generally just enjoy the hell out of the day.
