NEW YEAR'S DAY RIDE - January 1, 2018

Jan 1. 2018 - New Year's Day fell on a Monday this year, so it was up to the Monday Morning crowd to lead a ride.  We had a great turnout with 5 tandems (John and Valerie, Kevin and Val, Jane and Peter, Ted and Nancy,  Ally and Alan) and George on his single bike.  The weather was very cooperative.  Because the morning the day before was a bit frosty, we decided to start the ride at 11:00 a.m., an hour and a half later than our regular start time.  It was cold, but not freezing and not wet at all.  There was an east wind blowing though, so the plan was to head south to the Trolley Trail.  The wind always dies down past Milwaukie.  

We discussed the option of riding down the Springwater Trail to the Tilicum Crossing first and because Nancy commented she had never ridden across it before, so we added it to the plan.  It turned out to be a really nice day for a ride.  Very un-wintry.

We took our usual rest stop at Bridge Park in Gladstone and headed back towards Milwaukie with hopes of stopping at our usual watering hole, the Spring Creek Coffee House.  But they were closed for the holiday, so most of us went to the Mexican restaurant around the corner.  The ride ended with a short 2 mile trip back to Sellwood Waterfront Park.
