First Visit to Montana!

It was a slow week. 6 more riders made their first visit to locations in Washington and one rider finally made it out to Montana. Cold, wet and windy – not ideal! I was checking web cams this morning to prepare for a ride later this week and most major passes over the Cascades in Oregon are snow covered again. A rider making his way north through eastern Oregon over the weekend rode through intermittent flurries and occasional accumulation.

Here’s a quick breakdown:

  • 79 riders have made at least one visit (up from 73 last week).
  • A total of 167 pictures have been credited (up from 146 last week).
  • Washington still has a commanding lead in total number of visits (102) over second places Oregon (35). I’m sure that will change when the weather improves.
  • No finishers, yet, but a few are closing in on it!
