Solo Cycling in Southern Oregon, USA

August 31 to September 18, 2020, I cycled in Oregon. When the smoke from forest fires got too intense, I went home to Eugene, loaded my bike in my car and cycled and drove in Oregon and Idaho. Enjoy my sketchbook diary!

After a day of cycling the rails to trails path in Klamath Falls, I cycled UP to Aspen Point Campground.

Celebrating my 70th birthday, bicycling in Oregon

Since it is so nice this summer, I rode my bicycle right out my front door, with a load of camping gear and extra clothes in panniers, north on the Willamette Scenic Bikeway, to the Tualatin Scenic Bikeway, to Astoria, Oregon. Then I rode south along the Oregon Coast to Florence. From there I cycled home to Eugene. About 532 miles of cycling in 12 days (yes, I am bragging). Enjoy my sketchbook diary of my solo bicycle tour celebrating my 70th birthday!

Amanda and Colin were just the best! Cycling creates community!
Wahoo! I made it home!
