This day started & ended soggy, but had an amazing, adventure filled middle!

We woke to damp everything, which is why we were stoked to have pitched the tent under heavy tree cover. Regardless, we got a bit wet on our first 7 files or so going over Cape Foulweather. I thought the entire day would end up like this, so we opted for ‘Second Breakfast’ at the Sea Hag in Depoe Bay. That hit the spot and we were able to wait out some wetness and fog… As we were preparing for… Dun dun dunnnnnnnn… ~Lincon City~

A number of people headed south had horror stories of being harassed or just messed with in this town. It was a 5 mile stretch that had tons of traffic, no bike lane, or shoulder on the majority of it’s 4 lane roadway. About halfway through we noticed a tailwind and we were booking it through the mostly downhill grade. Awesome!
On our way out we crossed the 45th parallell, got outta there lickety spli,t & didn’t bother to look back.

As we rolled int Tillamook County, the scenery got even more epic. Even the two mega hills we climbed were drowned out by the fact that we had interesting views of rolling fields, forests, leaves falling from treed canopies overhead, and scenic roadways in general.

Finally, rolling towards camp was even better with the view from the overlook… Which I might add is where we hit 1300 miles for this trip! As this was the last day on the coast, Mikey & I celebrated with some beers & baby clams in a can!

Tomorrow we look forward to a chill ride into the city of Tillamook & catching a ride to Portland on the ‘Wave’.
