Back on US-101, I hug the Eel River until turning off on Avenue of the Giants and climbing through the majestic redwoods to Garberville, where I'll enjoy a much-needed rest day after another 60 miles spinning the pedals of my Vilier.

I picked up a couple of hitchhikers in return for free eggs
Eel River Valley
Scotia Mill is enormous
Been looking forward to this for months
Don't need a San Francisco sign on Avenue of the Giants
I need one of these for the door to my office
Spectacular ride amongst the Giants
Tailwind and canopied most of the 30 miles
...there I go!
Screw the detour. I went for it this time and was able to cycle through
On August 14, 2013, I'm flying to Vancouver, British Columbia and beginning a 29-day, 1,880-mile bike ride from Canada to Mexico.
On this page you'll find random ramblings before, during, and after my trek down the Pacific Coast. Prior to BikeTheCoast13, I'll blog about my prep, training, and thoughts from the road. While visiting my blog, I hope you'll offer comments, suggests, and words of encouragement. I'm going to need all the help I can get!
For those who don't know me or my inspiration, please take a moment to check out the Why Now? tab to meet my daughter Lindsey and find out how I got here.
If this site helps or inspires you in any way, I hope you'll consider making a small donation to the cause.
