After 74 days, 3827 miles and hundreds of amazing memories, here I am in Cannon Beach with 31 of the best friends I could’ve ever asked for.
It still hasn’t hit me that its over, so I am not quite sure how to feel, but I know I will never forget this summer.
Thank you so much to everyone who has helped to make this possible. You really have helped families and individuals across the country to have a home in their future, and have helped foster the best experience of my life thus far!
A special thanks to Jason at SanFrancyclo for teaching me everything I know about bike repair and maintenance, as well as how to pack my bike, which really came in handy when trying to get 31 bikes back home safely!
Also thanks to Pedro and Michael at Sports Basement for helping me get geared up and ready for the adventure.
I rode in the van today because I am having really bad knee pain. It was really hard to be separated from the rest of the team, button hoping to be back on my bike tomorrow
Here we are, in Oregon.
Today was quite the battle. Before the day began I was in the no flats club, and by the end of the day, I needed new tires.
I had rotated my tires the night prior in hopes of avoiding flats for the rest of the trip, but failed miserably and got 4 glass flats today. I guess if it ain’t broke, dont fix it.
We made it to the Oregon sign after a few more hours in the smoldering sun, and then finished up the ride after finding our perfect outfits for prom at the local salvation army.
Today was one of the top five rides of the trip. We took our time soaking up 61 miles of rolling canyon roads. We rode along side the salmon river which flows through the mountains. It was so nice to be squeezing through the mountains instead of crawling up them.
We met up with a Jeff, a man who was at our host last night, and heard all about his career as a professional cyclist, and enjoyed a great ride
