In June 2011 I turned 50. Since I am getting older, I feel that I should slow down and enjoy my bike rides more. So I will being doing more solo riding and touring that will give me the time to just ride and enjoy.

The purpose of this blog is to share my ride 'events', insights and experiences with others.

Enjoy my blog and hopefully you will get something out of it that will benefit your own riding.

Planned Oregon Coast Ride this summer

So I am planning a week long, self-supported ride from Astoria, OR to Cresent City, CA.  I will be riding my Trek Portland and likely towing my Burley trailer.  This will be my first multi-day self-supported ride.  The plan is to start on Sunday June 12th and finish on Saturday June 18th, the day I actually turn 50. 

415.5 miles in seven days, about 60 miles per day.  I feel this should be a do-able ride at this pace.  I created this blog so that I could post from the road during the trip.  It will make it easier to remember the trip.  I will also be posting pictures here as well.

I guess that is it for my first blog entry on my very first blog.
