Sandy hill ride

What do you do when it was 106 yesterday and it's supposed to be 100 today? Go on a hilly bike ride of course! My friend Steve and I set out early for the small town of Sandy through country roads with lots of rollers. Went through the town and out in the country and saw 362nd avenue and took that. It had some steep rollers and I was using my front derailer more than the back it seemed. At one point hit 43 going down one hill. That road circled around and ended up back in Sandy. I used to carry maps- now I just ride. Back to Steve's house in Gresham at 33 miles with an average of 14.8.
Going to Michigan on Monday for a little over a week. My mom has a cottage on a lake, so I should be able to swim, maybe. And run the dirt roads, hopefully. It's a family reunion with picnics every day, golf tournament, square dance, etc. Training may suffer!
PS- Watched a repeat of the time trial in the tour- way to go Landis!

  • $510,000 Mortgage for Under $1,641/Month!
    The $1,640.36 payment is based on the borrower selecting the minimum monthly payment option on a $510,000 adjustable first mortgage loan with an interest rate of 7.633%, a 7.584% APR. The monthly payment is fixed for the first 30 days and will adjust monthly thereafter. The minimum monthly payment option is calculated by amortizing the loan balance over the remaining term of the loan at an interest rate of 1.000%. By selecting this option, the loan has the potential for negative amortization. The minimum monthly payment option is subject to recasting every 5 years or if the principal balance reaches 110% of the original loan balance. The borrower also has the option of making an interest-only payment or making principal and interest payments amortized over either 15 or 30 years. For example, if the borrower selects to make principal and interest payments amortized over 30 years, the monthly payment will be $3,612.56. These terms are available for first mortgage loans. To qualify for this monthly payment, the property must be owner occupied single family residence and a loan-to-value ratio of 80%. Credit restrictions may apply. Rate is variable and subject to change daily without notice.
