Day 3 of the tour is about to begin! The last two days Kiran,Sharad,and I biked from Eugene to Redmond, OR,where I am now. Yesterday was the epic climb over Santiam Pass, 4800 feet high! The climb was a workout, about 25 miles of going up and up. But the bomb down was exciting! Now I'm on "the dry side" of Oregon, though rain is in the forecast for the next several days.
One mountain pass down, about 6 more to go!
Today will be an easier day, as we are only going to Ochoco Lake past Prineville.
