Default 1st time Trans-Cornell Rd.

Finally, after 5 years, I rode up and over Cornell Rd. from the westside into downtown.

The downhill after Skyline was most excellent! The uphill was quite reasonable even with traffic.

I'm also glad I brought the Beaverton bike map along. It has a nice regional overview map showing me where I was once I hit Skyline.

Looking forward to doing it again soon.

Climbing the steep grades of Cornell on a bike is a fair accomplishment, probably more so on a bent. Three cheers! Maybe an extra kiss from your best gal too.

When I was putting on a lot of miles each week...long ago...I'd ride it periodically to escape boredom; it definitely wasn't my favorite route. Long and straight, descending Cornell's west side can be a real screamer if you dare.
