Day 3: Lincoln City to Florence

Day 3: Lincoln City to Florence

Day 3 begins with a lot of unknowns.  I always look at Google maps for an elevation profile but that doesn’t really tell you about the steepness of the climb.  Yesterday, I climbed for about 40 minutes straight. I figured I’d be in for much of the same today.

Day 1: Portland (bus to Astoria)

Day 1: Portland (bus to Astoria)

I stayed at the Hotel Modera.  Near Portland State, a pretty cool part of downtown.  Day 0 and the last day should be spent in nice hotels.  The others, not so much. It makes it easier to leave in the morning.

Bike Trek Day 4 & 5:  Milwaukee to Chicago

Bike Trek Day 4 & 5: Milwaukee to Chicago

This bike trek's been different than the others.  Bike challenges, rain, very rough roads (California spoiled me) and desolate spaces without many services.
