Day 30: Fatigued (Manchester KOA to Bodega Bay Dunes State Park)

My body finally felt fatigued as I pedaled out of camp in the morning with Sang Hyun. We had tailwind but that was not very helpful as we rolled through the 68 miles to our next camp ground. A good break got us going as we battled the Sonoma Coast climbs and came up to […]

Day 29: Blown In (Mackericher State Park to Manchester KOA)

Our group of 2 became a group of 4 today as said good-bye to Yves and Linda (the French Canadian couple) and rolled into town for a big breakfast at Dennys. Portlan and Roberto left the both of us after breakfast a few minutes earlier but we later reconvened. The ride turned out to be […]


Day 28: Blah! (Standish Hickey Campgrounds to Mackericher State Park)

This was probably one of our least favorite days so far in our trip down the Pacific Coast. Not only did we need to climb the highest hill for the entire trip, we had to endure several more up and down hills along the coast on PCH. The only saving grace was that we are […]

Finally on Highway 1

Day 26: Check Point (Day Off)

Look up at giant redwoods

Day 25: Best Day (Eureka KOA to Burlington Campgrounds)

The goal for today was to be on the Avenue of the Giants before sunset to give us extra┬átime to explore for a bit. What we got for the day was the best riding day so far. We passed great little towns, ate really good food, was given great terrain, and the majority of the […]


Day 24: Traveling by Three (Elk Prairie State Park to Eureka KOA)

We were joined by Portlan on today’s ride from Elk Prairie campgrounds down to the Eureka KOA. Portlan normally leaves earlier than any of us to get into camp first. He had been successful a few times this week and thought he was ready to ride with us into our next destination. He did a […]
