  •  I c Cycle Oregon's week ride sold out under 48 hrs (2+ / 0-)

    All 2,200 rider slots. Probably because a large portion of  this years week ride route  follows the gorgeous Oregon Coast. They'll be riding some of the same stretches of Highway 101 that I rode on my tour down the coast last September.

    I did their week ride back in 2008. We circled the Wallowa Mountains in northeastern Oregon. They only had 1,400 riders on that one. Here's a link to the pdf map of day 5 in the mountains.

      I'd love to do that someday.  A few years ago I was driving with my brother-in-law from Crescent City north through Gold Beach and the wind was so strong we passed a cyclist trying to go across a bridge, and pedaling as hard as he could and not making any forward progress.  It was funny, but I was still envious and would love to revisit all my happy growing up places on the Oregon Coast on my bike.

      How can we be enemies, if we are already friends?
