IMG_4129I woke to lovely fog, had a great breakfast and visit with my host Meadow and rolled onto U.S. 199 before nine for my easy thirty to Grants Pass. I had directions on several good bypass routes – mostly where old 199 branches away from the newer road. Sure enough, the most interesting things happened when I was off the main path.

There is some great ‘hippie’ architecture in Kerby.

I opted for the road not taken, on the right. Hayes Hill Road had zero traffic and a sweet roller coaster descent for three miles.

Four ladies providing snacks for riders on the Rouge River 100 mile ride gave me full access to their food and drink.

The Saturday market in Grant’s Pass is the happening place in town. After a writing break, I enjoyed dinner with a warmshowers host who had just finished the River Rouge Ride. Brian had a more difficult riding day than me.

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
