I'll spend 2/3 of Day 15 working my way back to the coast and it promises to be a grind. At 4,186', this will be the most climbing I do with panniers, and at 1,990', Leggitt Hill is the highest point on the Pacific coast Bike Route. After that 3.5-mile climb, the descent should be awesome, though another climb will follow. There are no towns after Leggitt until Westport (pop. 60) at mile 50. From there it's 17 flat miles to Fort Bragg, gateway to the Mendocino Coast.

Don't be throwing crap overboard on the hills - you might hit a seagull or something!! Just keep eating... and pedaling. You're doing awesome!

Looks like Heaven! So glad you're still in the saddle! But we'll be happy to see you Saturday!

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.
