Who knows Garry Kehr?
We rode! We ate! We made new friends! Three COGS members (Kevin, Pam, and Liam) joined the Spokane Bicycle Club (SBC) for a delightful weekend of riding and eating and walking around Colville, WA. The weather was good. A bit cloudy and cool but not cold. It was good cycling and camping weather. Colville is a nice, quiet town. Pam and Liam opted for a hotel instead of the staying at the campground at the fairgrounds. But I have to say the campground was super nice and right in the middle of the town. It was convenient to everything. With clean bathrooms, hot showers, and a kitchen for the group. I would seriously consider staying at the campground next time I do this ride. The SBC members were very friendly and welcoming.
On Friday afternoon, after driving for 6+ hours, we rode 21 miles with SBC. Pam and I were tired from the drive so we passed on the Friday dinner with the group and picked up a gluten free pizza from Westside Pizza. It was awesome! Kevin had dinner with the group. On Saturday morning, we rode 40 miles. Later in the afternoon, we had a potluck at the fairgrounds which included BBQ from the Longhorn restaurant in Spokane Valley. It was so delicious! On Sunday, we rode 17 miles, showered up, and since there were lots of leftovers from Saturday’s potluck we had that for lunch, and then headed back to Seattle. Even the drive was nice… except for I-90.
