Bike LogoSTP 2010 – Our pictorial story

The 11th adventure of riding the STP and I am here to tell you we made it!!!  All 204 miles – this year in two days.

My daughter was on the tandem with me, her first time STPing. We started out from Husky Stadium about 5:15 am on July 17th.  We were doing 145 miles to Kelso, Washington on day one and the other 60 or so miles into Portland on Sunday.

And in the beginning:

    Great ride! I enjoyed it minus the cold, and now that my buns and shoulders are not achey I would say I would definitely do it again! Love you dad!
