Social distancing Oregon Coast Cyclist style

Ok people, there aint no one who can say stuff is getting real. REI closed, baseball delayed, bars and resturaunts told to shut down, no wine tastings allowed, and lord knows finding a damn roll of toilet paper is like looking for the holy grail

This post is not to make light of what people are going through, pure and simple, it’s scary! Plus, most of the people Michelle and I have come to care for down here are in the service industry. It is going to be damn hard on them!

We are all going through stressful times though. We are being told to practice social distancing. Making sure there is a 6 foot buffer around us. Some people are taking this to mean “Stay home and hide!”

Beware of bicycle face!

I had to laugh today, I read a Tweet that contained a link to a 19th century health warning aimed at women who ride bikes.  Women were warned about potentially contracting Bicycle Face if they started riding.  Some say it was a way to try to prevent women from experiencing the freedom of two wheels, but maybe they were on to something afterall! Looking at some of my photos maybe there IS a bicycle face syndrome!: Continue reading “Beware of bicycle face!”
