Day 1 – September 12, 2021 – At the US-Canada border in Washington State. “Today started off cold and rainy but soon gave way to blue skies and sunshine. It was a 40-mile day with some hills and beautiful ocean bay views. A few minor bike issues, and joint pain, but all in all a good first day!”


A long crazy bridge to ride over

Update – September 18, 2021 – Somewhere in the southern Washington State coast and planning to make it to Astoria, Oregon tomorrow. A typical day: “By the time I get into camp, it’s usually around 4 pm (I get up at 5 am and hit the road at 7 am). I ride around 75 miles. Get to my campground. Dry all of my camping gear because everything gets wet here in the mornings. After everything dries, I set up my camp, cook dinner, clean up, take advantage of the campground showers, and now I’m filling up water and getting my gear set for the morning, another 5 am day.  My body is sore and stiff, but I felt strong today. Lots of hills and climbing. I’m hoping to miss some rain that’s in the forecast.”   Stay tuned to PWN for more updates.  more information here
