Pavement Markings for Rides Around Town
 
Dog Paw = Tour de Lab
STP Crest = Seattle to Portland
Yellow Lion = Ronde PDX
W = ????

Last weekend, I noticed a fresh white W near a lot of the (sparsely marked) Ronde turns. This weekend, I saw them in North Portland. What ride is this, and are there others I'm not aware of?

Just a guess... worst day of the year ride?

Yep, the "W"s, with a direction indicator were spray painted for the Worst Day of the Year ride last weekend. Fun time. Glad that the weather was so nice. ;)

I'll have to check out some of the other routes—after I finish the Ronde.

Speaking of pumpkins, there are only so many wrong turns you can make before the clock runs out on your ride.

Arthur: And men.
Slartibartfast: What?
Arthur: Best laid plans of mice and men.
Slartibartfast: Oh. No, I don't think men had much to do with it.
