um, yeah. I'll do it for short stretches, but not 100 miles - that just sounds wretched to me. I can't quibble with your time, tho. jr, you are indubitably an intrepid cyclist!
And i have it on good authority that Willamette Mission State Park (just north of Salem, at the Wheatland Ferry) will have a hiker/biker camp open starting this summer. Other than the (mostly vacant) group camping sites, there is no overnight camping now, and i'm here to tell you that it's a fantastic, beautiful, quiet camping spot once the day trippers clear out.
Plan your summer bike trip there now.
