One big FTW group ride and one solo ride round out a summer in a way that feels hard and final and renewing, a perfect circle of beginning and ending, closure and new life.
My first overnight bike trip since the European tour may have only been two days but the peninsula is beautiful and it was good to get back in the saddle.
A 60 mile day full of backtracking and getting lost on weird cobblestone streets, hiking trails and roads that were bigger than I wanted was a real test of wills…but I did it.

The second half of my trip had some pretty big hills but also the prettiest hiker/biker campsite you’ve ever seen at Cape Lookout.
My first day and a half cycling the Oregon coast was scary and amazing but I rode those seven devils like a boss and you can too.
