Portland to Astoria

The idea was to ride out, stay the night, and then ride back the next day. However, November is perhaps not the best time of year for this ride; it rained heavily on us all day, and it snowed over night. So yes, we all got rides home. I didn’t take a single picture, my hands were too cold.

I have yet to actually achieve this goal, but I imagine it would be lovely if the sun were out.

A few things to note:

Services are few and far between beyond Scappose, so make sure you pack what you need. There was an open bathroom near-ish the end of the ride in a county park.
