Astoria- LT19 Day 3 60 Soma Saga

Nice ride. 

Vernonia- LT19 Day 2 56 Soma Saga



Followed an Oregon Randonneur route from McMinnville with nice rolling hills. Late second breakfast in Banks. 

The BV Trail was harder than I expected. I probably wore myself out on the rolling hills, plus too heavy a meal in Banks, plus terrible rough pavement which really beat me up. Nice on the downhill side. Camping at Anderson part right on the trail in Vernonia  



McMinnville LT19 Day 1 50 Soma Saga

Nice start to LT19. Cloudy in the morning and then clearing throughout the day. Some headwind. Camping at Yamhill fairgrounds.
