Biking the Trans America

2 Wheels, 6 Months, 1 Adventure

Kim and Mark were up early and welcomed me with Coffee, French Toast with fresh picked cherries.. Mark and Kim biked the Trans Am last year and have been all over the US biking.. So cool to hear of all their stories…

With directions to get back on the route I headed north. I switched to Section 1. the last of 12 sections of maps… So exciting… The route was through fertile pasture land.. Lewisburg, Adair Village, Manmouth, and Clow Corner. There was a nice bike path to Rickreall west of Salem. The route turned west on 22 and headed to the coast… I stopped at a Casino in Valley Junction and got a bite as the wind picked up. Grand Ronde was a small town with a campground where I called it a day… Looking forward to see the Pacific tomorrow. …
