Just a quick post today. It’s late (OK after 830) and I have to work tomorrow…
What some of you might not know, is that in addition to being a coast kid, a cyclist, and a dead ringer (albeit shorter) for Tom Selleck,
I am, in my wife’s terms, a complete bird nerd! Tonight’s ride was bird nerd classic! Continue reading “Best Bird Nerd Bike ride ever!”
Michelle has a rule for me on Fathers Day. I get to do what I want. I know it will come as a shock to find out that I normally want to take a bike ride! Continue reading “Father’s Day Ride 2019”
Well folks, it happened again. Yesterday while riding, I hit one of those big milestones of miles. Yep, the 35000th mile ticked over during the after work ride.
Tradition says I change my blog name, and I have. But for some reason this milestone seems different…. Continue reading “Is that a new name?”
So here we are, the start of our second Memorial Day as residents of the Oregon Coast.
So far this evening has NOT been the most relaxing. I left the office at 3 for a quick errand to take our bottles and glass to the local transfer station to be recycled (for some reason we can’t put glass in our curb side bins)
Then , after work, I went down to buy farm fresh eggs. Where, as I walked back to the car, I noticed the back tire was almost flat. (it had just enough to get me home). Having had allowed our AAA to lapse, I rolled up the sleeves and changed it myself!
Then I had just enough time to get to Les Schwab to get it repaired for free!

But that is NOT what I mean by not boring…. Continue reading “It Never Gets Old”
Well folks, for me May means two things these last few years. The first is Bike everywhere month. Once again, even though I moved to the Oregon Coast, I was the captain of the team for the Mighty P! This Friday last, was bike to work day. Well when you work at home there is no commute. Michelle knows me well, though, and convinced me to saddle up for a ride around the block. Here I am, sporting game face, flip flops and cargo shorts coming into the ‘office’.
Now I did catch some grief for no helmet! Rest assured, any ride where I lose sight of my own garage I ALWAYS wear a helmet!
The other thing that occurs in May is the Reach the Beach ride.

There are many reasons we love living here. Fresh air, waves, and less traffic are just a few.
While driving home from this morning from the weekly grocery shopping trip, I was reminded of another reason and inspired to make a post. Continue reading “Nature Around Us”
You know, I pondered a bit about the title of this post. Ya see, the challenges I am going to talk about are really NOT unique to those of us lucky enough to ride on the coast.
However, since I AM an Oregon Coast Cyclists and these were the challenges for me today, the title stands… Continue reading “Challenges of an Oregon Coast Cyclist”
