At 83 miles, this is the longest scheduled day in Oregon or Washington. Mostly traversing the coast, I'll start with the Three Capes Scenic Route to Cape Meares, Cape Lookout, and Cape Kiwanda, then cycle through Pacific City and Lincoln City, before finishing at the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport.
Sort of a weird night. Woke up to go to the bathroom and couldn't go back to sleep for about an hour. Then I woke up all stressed out and I'm not even sure why. I just needed to hit the road. Now that I have, I'm back in my "zone."
I'm feeling really good at the rest stop. Cleat re-positioning and a little different riding technique seems to be doing the trick with the achilles. Knee feels good too. Long way to go though, so still plenty of time for me to complain about something.
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.
