Todays ride is dedicated to our freinds at Chemtreat. Thanks for your support John!
Woke up to rain. Evaluating route. Sarah and Shannon would like to ride today so we are looking for semi-hill free zones.
Sarah completed 17.5 miles, Shannon 8.5 miles.
It was a recovery day with beautiful views of the Pacific.
We kept hop-scotching with a rider loaded down with panniers. Turns out he has been cycling for 2.5 years, 19,000 km and is documenting the dwindling forests worldwide. From France, he has travelled across Russia, Canada and is now travelling to South America. Check out his blog at:
Interesting stuff. There is an English translator on the right side of the page.
Friends from Vancouver Dave Fergus and his daughter Julie met us at the campground for a spagetti dinner. They brought fresh salad, bread and sodas. Great fun! Thanks Dave and Julie. Trying to get more sleep.
Friends Janine and Lyn Ayers met us in Astoria yesterday. Thanks for taking Diane out for coffee! They also brought us an aircard for the computer to help with connectivity.
We are trying to keep things up to date, but it is a challenge!
Kevin got a flat in Seaside at the boardwalk. We stopped there for clam chowder with Diane and the girls.
