Default 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?

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.
