Our first day of riding! Yesterday, after visiting Scott and Marilyn in Sunnyvale we drove our van to Astoria, Oregon and got a hotel room. Today we rode the tandem out to the Pacific Ocean at Fort Stevens and dripped a tire on the surf. Then back to the hotel. It was a perfect weather today. All the roads in this corner of the state have wide, smooth shoulders - we are spoiled!
What surprised us was the extent of the redwood coastal rainforests! See the picture below of the Fort Stevens bike path.
