First Two Days of the Tour

Getting ready to ride from Astoria. Sherry will be with us until at least Eugene, and so we are riding bag-free for a few days until she flies home. Day 1, we went from Astoria to Rockaway Beach - about 55 miles. Rain and headwinds ruled the day, but it had stopped raining by the time we had to make camp. The camp was just on the other side of the dunes from the ocean and we were able to spend some time watching the waves come in off of the Pacific.

Fort Clatsop, where Lewis and Clark spent the winter

Seaside Oregon - more beaches. You can see how the people are dressed - rain jackets and long pants. It was pretty cold and windy.

Oregon has a lot of beach like this one below. Big rocks dot the coastline.

Our camp in Devil's Lake Recreation Area near Lincoln City. Note the car, which is carrying our bags. It was another day of rain and strong headwinds. It took us 6 full hours of pedaling to go about 60 miles.
