Ladies and Gentlemen:

Today is May 1st...a not so subtle reminder that another First Saturday is just around the corner. Unfortunately, other obligations have gotten in the way. But fear not!  We'll be riding on Sunday instead.

And we've got a good one for you. Join us as we venture north and west, along Columbia County's famed OR-47. From there, we'll mosey to Westport, where we'll board the Wahkiukum Ferry and enjoy the last interstate ferry crossing on the Columbia River. Then we'll zip along WA-4 and US-101 (there are no alternatives, believe me, I've looked) to South Bend, Washington, the self-proclaimed "Oyster Capital of the World." In nearby Raymond, we'll overindulge in the local delicacy, raw or hot off the grill, at the Pitchwood Alehouse, before we head for home through Pe Ell, on some of the best back roads you've never ridden.

If that sounds like an ideal way to spend the first Sunday in May, then make your way to Tigard BMW with a full tank of gas. Clutches out at 9:45. Early RSVPs are welcome, especially this time. I want to make sure there are plenty of oysters on hand. Don't forget $4 cash for the ferry.

That's Sunday, May 6. A map is attached. Questions? You know where to find me.

Look forward to seeing you Sunday,
