On Saturday (which was arguably the most beautiful weather we’ve had all year around these parts) I had the pleasure of joining 1,300 other people on the 37th annual Pioneer Century.
The ride is hosted by the Portland Wheelmen Touring Club. The routes begin in Canby and traverse through bucolic rural roads south of Mollala and out to Champoeg State Park to the west. Creature comforts of the ride included free coffee cake and other treats from Jim and Patty’s Coffee before we took off and a lunch of Chris King’s famous chicken fajitas (prepared by King’s corporate chef Robert McSpadden).
It was a great day to be on a bike. Check out a few more of the sights in the photos below…

Special thanks to ride coordinators Ron Ing and Benn Schonman, the Portland Wheelmen, and the Chris King crew for their hospitality.
