Bike ride in Sisters

Today was a rest day from hiking. We loaded up the bikes and drove to Sisters (again). After coffee (of course), we rode north on Camp Polk Road and then north-west on Indian Ford Road. Upon reaching Highway 97, we backtracked the same route instead of making a loop ride by returning to Sisters on the busy highway. This section was about 20 miles of nice, flat, un-busy roads with some very nice views of the Three Sisters.

Back in town, Karen wanted to shop, but I wasn’t feeling tired, so I headed south on Three Creeks Road. About 9 miles into this section, climbing continuously, I remembered this was a rest day and I was getting very tired. On top of that, the road has frost heaves every 20 or 30 feet and the bumpiness really made my wrists ache.
