Willimatte Valley Cycling – Sunday

Because we arrived at the hotel so late on Saturday night, we started the day greeting old friends from previous Lizardhead trips.  Of the 19 participants on the tour, 15 of us have ridden together on at least one, similar tour.

 

After breakfast and the pre-tour orientation from John Humphries, the owner of Lizardhead, we shuttled to the town of Banks where we offloaded the bikes and began our ride.  The landscape was gently rolling with a few small hills.  We passed through some rural residential areas and lots of farmland.

Lizardhead owner, John Humphries, talks to our guide, Emily, before the ride begins.

We were told that Oregon is bike friendly and motorists know how to share the road.  Evidently a few out of state drivers were driving the same roads we were on today.  We had our share of wheelie-popping motorcyclists and F-250’s passing two feet to the left and honking their horn.

Ironically it was hotter in Oregon today than in Rome.

We arrived in McMinnville about 4:00.
