Yesterday Lena (wife) & I drove up to Brookings, OR and then rode up to Gold Beach and back. Great ride, 56 miles round trip, with a horrendous 22 mph headwind going north, and a great tailwind on the way back. I don't know about you, but I can tolerate any headwind if I know that I'll have it as a tailwind on the way home.
We got an early start...
Had to take a pictures of these guys hanging out with their statue buddy.
This sign says it all.
The blowing spray gives you and idea of the strength of the wind.
The shoulders were wide in most places, but there is a fair amount of fast car traffic (speed limit 55).
This was the start of the 1,000 foot climb to the top of Cape Sebastion. It was tough with the wind and the climbing combined.
