Afternoon Heat Relief
Here we have an overland triker who has at long last pedaled into the shade of a hill during late afternoon. The day’s ride over the previous 17 miles had been hot and demanding, with many steep uphills in the blazing sun. Now the road flattens and heads slightly downhill … for a half mile at most, until the next climb through the rolling foothills of Oregon’s mighty big Cascade Range.
Gary Bunting is the rider here, on his 2010 Catrike Road pulling a Burley trailer. Marathon Plus tires grace the ground for a flat free experience. At 66 years, Gary demonstrates that trikes are not just for kids.
