From the border to the Redwoods

Biked across a state border

I've walked across a major border once, when I hiked on the Chilkoot Trail.. I crossed from the USA into Canada.

Humbug to Brookings- last bit of Oregon

Cat resting at the Book Dock Bookstore in Brookings
Humbug to Oregon - Last bit of Oregon - the end of one chapter and soon, the beginning of another in the journey.

Here's some more photos that I took on my trip... I really love the cat one, he/she seemed to be right at home in the bookstore, and what's a bookstore without a resident cat?

Seven Devils and other random Pacific Coast Bike Trip Photos.

Between Newport and Jessie M. Honeymoon State Park
Manchester Beach to Jessie M. Honeymoon State Park, and beyond....
It's really hard to choose photos to post here. I have so many to choose from. I don't want to post all in the case that someone coming here will view my slideshow... anyways, here's another post of only some of the photos that I took.  I had the slideshow in mind while travelling, hence the ton of photos.

Pacific Coast Photo Album - Day 2

Bridge that connects Washington to Oregon
Astoria to Nehalem Bay State Park

(Approximately 40 or so Miles)

*Warning* If you are going to see my eventual slide-show in the future, many of these photos will be featured in it.

We stayed at a hotel near one of bridges that connects Washington to Oregon states.  I have heard that it is quite a challenging bridge to cross on a bike because of the strong crosswinds, although apparently the official ACA route goes across another bridge.   And that one is also very challenging as you can imagine. Even though we didn't have to cross those particular bridges, we did have our fair share of challenging bridges to cross on our journey.  (Tunnels too)

Before departing for Nehalem Bay, we took a side trip to the Goonies house.  I love the sign at the beginning of the driveway.

One of two tunnels that we had to go through
We went through one of the tunnels on the first day.  Another bicyclist was kind enough to push the 'bicycles in tunnel' sign button to activate the blinking lights on the warning sign.

 We met this group of woman cyclists in Seaside, they were riding on a fully supported tour down the Oregon Coast/
Nehalem  Bay

Final Destination - Part II

Bicycling towards Sausalito
After meeting up with Leo at the Village Peddler, I continued on towards San Francisco.  Even though it was only 20 km away, it was taking longer to ride it as I was riding in the City.  I read the directions in the 'Bicycling the Pacific Coast' book carefully, so I wouldn't get lost.

Final Destination - Part I

On my final Day, I said my goodbyes to fellow bicyclists staying at Samual P. Taylor State Campsite, which is about 40 km North of San Francisco. The campsite was full of riders from all over and a few hitchhikers also.

Tandem Bicyclists from Scotland
