South Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway Scout Ride

On January 8, 2013 by giroprotagonist

After four rides on the northern part of the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway I finally decided it was time to see the southern part.  While I may be riding the whole thing in the upcoming weeks I wanted to scope it out to both mentally prepare and gain route knowledge.  So I scraped myself out of bed yesterday at about 5:30AM (day 6 of no caffeine) threw the bike on the car and drove down to Albany.  I parked just on the west side of town where the route heads back into farm roads.  I could go on about pastoral this and gentle rollers that but that’s what digital media is for, enjoy the photos and start planning a trip on the WVSB.

This was just past Peoria County Park. A farmhouse and a few trees engulfed in pasture.
