Ride Report: Stoller Family Estate

So much has happened in the last month on the biking front for me.

I am out there and enjoying biking and have two new bikes and have retired THE bike. I haven’t posted much … no worries about the past, let me just plunge into this…

Ride Report, yesterday, the expected thunderstorms arrived at 6 in Portland, well after the late morning ride through the Oregon wine country starting at the Stoller Family Estate near Dayton. Great weather and a wonderful location to ride through. 95% pavement, 5% gravel and about 80/20 quiet roads and only one mean spirited driver.

Relive ‘Stoller Family 🍷’

The mid ride stop was at the Carlton Bakery which is am amazing bit of European Bakery to have and worthy of a stop whenever one is in the area. It was noted that the calories of any of the items far exceeded the ride calories…but I plunged in anyway. It is like the folks who say you waste money buying coffee, well, there is something to be said for either side and yet this is summer, and I haven’t been in Carlton in many years.

Sync Your Runs & Rides

tapiriikI am trying tapiriik, an open source project, to automatically synchronize my fitness activities between Garmin Connect, Runkeeper, Strava and more.  Yes, I use Garmin Connect on my main machine which does Garmin and Strava, but I couldn’t resist adding Runkeeper and RideWithGPS.
