Departing work around 9pm and doing 10 miles in 31 minutes isn’t tobad, as long as the headlamp is charged. I had a very dim headlamp going into champoeg state park where ill be camping for the next four to five days. Champoeg is on the bank of the willamette river which is one of the few rivers in the world that flows north. A quiet campground with a large cyclist camp. Getting to champoeg I took case road which had a section or two of gravel which was interesting. I have always given the cyclocross guys so much shit because they seem to be confused about whether to go road or mountain. It was a lot of fun flying down gravel, but was probably not the best thing for my bike.
