We were finally on the road headed to Portland by about 10:30. When we got to the US border the wait to get across was about an hour. So by the time we arrived in Portland it was very late in the afternoon just in time the hear the last bit of the volunteers meeting and attend the riders meeting at 7:00. On the drive to Portland Aaron remarked that it seemed like a long drive and that we would have to cover half that distance every day riding. This realization made me wonder what I had gotten into.
Upon arrival at the Days Inn we were greeted by the biggest display of velomobiles in front the the Motel I had ever seen. That night we put almost all the velos in the conference room in the motel. There were too many to fit so some were left in the hallway. The picture is actully the next morning with folks getting ready to ride.
