12-09-15 Saturday 166 Days riding- 49.5 miles _ Now this is the Oregon Coast at it’s Best and promises to be more and more.
At the top of most cliff rises today have been spectacular views of where I am headed.
Being on a Recumant Trike really makes seeing this little views with out a turnout very nice.
Sometimes the back roads are a little closer to the edge than than the Main Highway.
This couple stopped for a few minutes as they passed me. They are from Switzerland and started a year long bicycle ride 2 months ago.
This is the Oregon Coastal Forest I have been thinking of – cool, damp and very soft green
Yes local Fox Glove along the road, yes it is very hilly. and since I am on the coast the ride will be a net elevation gain of 0 feet. Althougth I will climb 1500 feet up and then down
09-15 Sat It is a beautiful morning to get started down the coast.
Now we are on the coast – south of Tillimook, Ore moving along. I am sure to run out of adjavites for this section of the journey.
finally lots of berries just on the side of the road – These are so ripe you can hold the cup underthem and gently shake them off the vine. (well a lot of them anyway)
This day is really going well the tail wind as promised is very enjoyable.
This is fun already with the Pacific Ocean on my right.
this is the main route for now.
this is were I made it to on day one down the coast 49.5 miles and feeling good. Stayed at the Hiker Biker section of the campground with a hot shower. Meet up with the couple from Switzerland, who shared dinner with me. They cook real food not just boil water and add.stuff, with a fresh salad as well.
