Drove to Falls City. Rode Frost Road, Teal Creek, Gardener, Liberty, Barnhart, Oakdale, and Falls City Highway. Lots of hills, lots of gravel, some loose. Warmer with no rain.

Got out in the afternoon. It was almost sunny, but then it rained. 

Put the Almotion tires back on the Ravn getting ready to head south.

A different kind of New Year's Day ride. Didn't go with the club. Went solo on the Ravn, but didn't head up into the woods. I went south and rode the mud at Willamette Park. Nice day although it rained pretty good on the way home.

2 Geezers rides. I’ve been laying off the bike as much as possible since going over 5k for the year. I need the recovery. But it was warmer and not raining today so I couldn’t resist one last ride for the second decade of the century. 

Finished the year 30 miles shy of last year’s total and I’m fine with that.

Cold but dry with some fog. Started out flat but ended with some serious climbing, Fox Hollow being the hardest. It was good to see some of my Rando friends again. This rice also put me over 5,000 miles for the year.

No rain, and not terribly cold. Out to Phiolomath and over Decker from 34. More people are wanting to ride the gravel on 53rd coming back.
