Timothy Lake ride

Timothy Lake Ride

You ever do a ride that is so perfect it reaffirms your love for riding? On Saturday I did my first big ride of the “summer” and it was one I won’t soon forget.

Me and 7 other lucky folks rode from Ripplebrook Ranger Station (about 25 miles SE of Estacada on Hwy. 224) up to Timothy Lake and looped back down to the Clackamas River. Total ride mileage was about 54 miles.

I think we saw about 10 cars the whole time. We pedaled a narrow road (in pristinely smooth condition) through lush, green forests, meadows and wildflowers.

I want to share this ride with all of you, so if you’ve got a few minutes, I’ve posted more photos here.
