Just wanted to follow up on the progress of my first tour.
So far, so good! We've had a few bumps in the road and some light injuries (my knees, and my friends arm), but other than that we've been pedaling our asses off and enjoying every minute of being out on the open road.
My friend and I started riding from Bremerton, WA on 5/5 and we're currently posted up in a motel here in Crescent City, CA today as it's pouring rain outside. Would you believe me if I told you today was the first time we've seen rain on this trip? Well, it's true. We couldn't believe it either! We rode through both Washington and Oregon without a single drop of rain.
We arrived here in Crescent City, CA yesterday after a short 30 miles from Harris Beach State Park in Oregon. We decided to take a rest day here in Crescent City before tackling some big hills tomorrow on our way into the Redwoods.
Do any of you guys have any recommendations for us when it comes to exploring the Redwoods? Anything we should look out for or prepare for before we head on out tomorrow morning?
If you'd like to follow along with our trip you can do so over on my site: http://www.pausethemoment.com as well as on Facebook
Thanks guys, and safe travels!
