Day 1 Coast Rand Gravel Adventure 2018

8 riders set off from Osborn on a glorious October morning to follow the C2C route through the Coast Range on a glorious October morning. Peter's wife Karen offered to drive my van, so we had SAG support. We picked up Rick in Philomath and headed out highway 20 to Woods Creek road. It was a bright sunny say and it would get nice and warm. Of course this late in the season the sun is low and a lot of places in the woods are in the shade.

Everyone really emjoyed the C2C trail section. It's just a really fun ride. We got to Big Elk Campground and Tracy, Betty, and John hopped inĀ  Tracy's truck and headed home, leaving 7 of us to camp and ride the next day.
