Six riders decided to brave the heat today and try out our new Yakima Valley 225km RUSA brevet route to Bickleton and back. Sal Ortega and Ted Lundin from OR and Ward Beebe, Ray McFall, John Morris, and Owen Richards from WA started off at 6 this AM.
By 10am all riders made it to the secret control / water stop at mile 53. With temperatures still reasonable and a cooling breeze, all were in great spirits.
4:06PM - Ward Beebe and John Morris finished. Current temperature 96F.
5:59PM - Sal Ortega and Ted Lundin finished. Still 95F.
6:35PM - Ray McFall and Owen Richards finished.
