LaCamas Lake Ride

This morning I did a spinning class at the LaCamas Swim club (picture). The only way I could fit the whole club in the picture was from across the street. The greenhouse looking part is the big pool. Anyway, one hour of interval spinning with Denise (coach) talking about full-ironman tris the whole time. Afterwards, I still felt good and it wasn't raining for the first time in a week, so I went for a quick ride. I figured an hour would give me enough time to get ready for work and eat lunch also. Rode from the club to LaCamas Lake and around it past huge houses and Camas Meadows golf course. At one point a creek had overflowed a field and the drainage ditches beside the road were full to the brim and a car was 3/4 underwater in one of the ditches. Should have had the camera with me on the bike. The last week we have had 2 months worth of rain- the mountains and over by the coast have lost numerous sections of roads. Went out 8 miles and turned around because there were a lot of rolling hills. Stats for the ride: 16.1 miles in a 16.1 average. Drove to get a picture of the lake, but traffic had picked up and I couldn't find a good place to pull over, so I took a picture of the lake while driving which is why you can't see the lake.

Denise wants to modify our tri plan to one half tri in early August and a full this September- not sure- I've never run a half marathon distance let alone a full. I'm game for anything at this point though.


  • Spinning classes are so awesome. Great pics. I love the fall colors. We don't get seasons here. :(

  • Hope you get some relief from that hard rain your getting! I'm sure the usual Oregon drizzle is no problem to train in compared to the down pours you've had. Be safe!
