Wasn't in the mood for yet another run around Elk Meadow Open Space, so I strung together a mix of bike paths, singletrack and neighborhood side streets.
Distance: 8.55 miles
Weather: Cloudy & Cool
Mid-day loop run from the house using the People's Path (How did our fair town manage to name a bike path something so progressive-sounding?), Troutdale neighborhood streets and access in Dedisse Park, Dedisse trails, the trails around Evergreen Lake, the bike path through part of downtown and a collection of neighborhood side streets through the Hiwan HIlls 'hood.
A pleasant outing...nothing special, just some miles to clear the mind and work the body a bit. Didn't care much for all the pavement, but with winter on the way it's a sign of things to come.
