2008 Crater Lake Century

2008 Crater Lake Century, originally uploaded by bendersaxophone.

Summer school ended Friday. We have nearly a month break before school resumes in the Fall. Many of you know that Jody and I spend time bike riding and racing. Two weeks ago we road Cycle Oregon Weekend in Astoria. This Saturday we road 80 miles from Fort Klamath around Crater Lake and back to Fort Klamath. With 7000 feet of climbing and 90 degree heat it was a tough ride.

Jody and I have been using rides like Crater Lake and some local races to get in shape for our September vacation to Italy. We will be spending my fortieth birthday at the Italian Bicycling Center outside of Venice. I'll be using the weeks before we leave for Italy training, preparing for fall classes, winterizing the house and splitting a lot of firewood.
