Day 1: Portland to Government Camp

We started at 7:30 with an amazing send off breakfast at the KEEN headquarters then headed out for a 60 mile jaunt past the proposed Mt. Hood Wilderness area to Government Camp. Our crew of 18 (with representatives from Yakima, Dansko, Medicines Global, KEEN and Oregon Wild) had the great fortune of a perfect Oregon summer day for the inaugural day of the ride.

Two flats, a stop at Joe’s Donuts and bags of CLIF Bloks later we finished the day with a celebratory beer then parted ways with the Yakima and Oregon Wild crews as our core group of 5 riders headed on to Sisters on the road.

Quote of the day: If you don’t try to control stuff, everything works out better anyway – Dan Austin, Hybrid.Pedal cinematographer.
