The British Columbia Bike Race starts on Saturday July 2nd, but since there will be no race stage on Saturday, they call it Day Zero.
I took off on Wednesday at 7am which makes it Day Minus Three. All packed up, Mojo on the roof. I drove for 10 hours and made it to Eugene / Springfield, Oregon. Oregon is a pretty state, reminds me of Vermont. People must be nice, too, because everybody drives at the speed limit and drivers change lanes to let others pass (unimaginable in the Bay Area!), they won't let you pump gasoline by yourself, and have a DWD (Dying With Dignity) Law. A perfect place!
