Anybody doing Reach the Beach next weekend?

Just see who is planning on doing this this ride next weekend. Also, if you are doing it, what is your starting point? I'm starting at Salem for the 78 miler.

We'll be doing our usual "roll" from Salem to the Beach on our tandem. Great route with only one semi-climb.

If you happen to see this bike please say hi or just jump into our draft for a "free ride"!

Kasia and I will be doing the 100 mile ride starting in Portland. Let's hope the temperatures are less than last year!

KRhea,

I'll be looking for you and your nice tandem. I would love a "free ride" if I am able to keep up with you.

I was going to do this fixed from Portland, but my sister's boyfriend bailed on going, so I am stuck going to a wedding reception instead.

Some friends and I are riding it from Salem. Unfortunately we haven't ridden together much so it ought to be interesting. Their SO's are meeting us in Amity for the last 55 miles. Couldn't quite talk them into the 80 mile route. Also, the weather forecast seems to be improving. Crossing my fingers for no rain.

We're starting in Amity

One of my friends is being a whimp and didn't want to try the Salem route for the first time. Should be fun. This will be our first large organized event.

Does anyone know about how the bag check works?
