Fit and humble are two words that come to mind when thinking of the friend who biked with me today: Jan Fortier. She’s all about books, gardening, friendship, good relationships, and health. What a great smile, great friend. She used to commute by bike twice a week from SE Portland to Marylhurst, up the cemetery hill, down to LO, back through Tryon Creek, etc. What an animal.
We started at the McMenamin’s Grand Lodge, rode out Rt. 47 to the old Hwy 47 Rd, and then around Hagg Lake. When the clouds burnt off, the lake sparkled. It’s nothing but rollers around the lake, and fun. It was great to share those hills, those osprey, that time.
