Carre Heineck of Portland, the 2010 defending champion, was impressive with another win in the women’s field.  Second place went to Natalie Bak, also of Bend.  Congratulations to the winners and all the race participants.

Gas Discount to Visit Yamhill Valley Aug 26-28

What to do this weekend?  Consider a trip to the Yamhill Valley, a beautiful area known for its Pinot Noir and just an hour from Portland.  Go horseback riding through the Wine Country with Equestrian Wine Tours.  Or perhaps a limousine ride is more your style.  There are many limo companies to choose from.  Take a hike on the trails behind Our Lady of Guadalupe Trappist Abbey.
