Rest Day in Eugene

We rode the 75 miles into Eugene from Salem yesterday. It was a perfect day for bicycling - cool and overcast with light and variable winds. Our first two days were pretty tough, with headwinds and rain, but days 3 and 4 were much better. Light winds, little rain, and slightly overcast. Today, we had a massage, went to REI, cooked breakfast in our own Airbnb kitchen with eggs fresh from the resident chickens, and generally relaxed.

Tomorrow, we ride to McKenzie Bridge to spend the night. After that, we have a huge climb up and over the Cascade Mountains into Sisters, Oregon. Sherry is having fun hanging out with us, and she is going to add a few days to her trip. She went to a glass blowing class yesterday while we were riding to Eugene.

Here are a few random photos from the past few days:

Our first campsite near Rockaway Beach.

Café Bustelo in the Espresso maker in the campsite. Glamping at its finest.

We went to the Tillamook Cheese "Factory" in Tillamook, Oregon. They have good ice cream.

The Spruce Goose. Hard to really conceive of the size of this thing.

Eggs from our Airbnb resident chickens. Still warm.

The Salem Oregon Travelodge. Classic americana.
