OK, OK I know. Lately the blog has been mostly about cycling… But in all fairness, the Mountainstroh blog started as a cycling site. Then, as time when on, it just became more about life in general, and since my life, especially this time of year, seems to revolve around cycling, it kinda makes sense! Plus cycling at the Oregon coast is amazing!
However, there is something new that is wedging its way into life. In fact it is becoming a bit of habit. The Beachwalk!

So, as we all now know, Mountainstroh and Mrs. Mountainstroh have moved out of the Puget Sound area of Washington. Last Saturday, we pointed our noses to the Southwest and arrived at Lincoln City. Since then, we have been going nonstop, with our OH SO helpful friends to set up the house, there are SO many more posts to come about the move in… Continue reading “After Work in Lincoln City!”
So when I last left y’all, I had told you that Michelle and I had had one HELLUVA busy weekend last week. (See That was a busy 36 hours!) I will tell you that the week did slow down a bit, and I was NOT rushing near as much as last Saturday. Continue reading “it was an interesting week!”
There are a LOT of options for me during the year to ride century rides. Quite often I choose the ones I do for the ending spot.

From the pictures I’ve posted you might not know it, but I am telling you, this has been a wild week of weather. Tuesday night I was woken up more than once by the winds howling over our skylights. Add to it, heavy rains, followed by sun breaks, and its been fun.
The thing is, with northwest beaches, we KNOW we will get weather like this. Its part of the fun of going. But it sure as hell aint for wimps! Continue reading “Cannon Beach 2017 Part III”
Monday morning dawned, and Michelle was up and raring to go after her half Marathon. How ready was she? Well after walking 13.1 miles the day before, she popped out of bed, put on her workout gear and went down to the workout room for a recovery elliptical machine session.
I drug my ass out of bed and went to Starbucks!
After saying goodbye to everyone, and grabbing some books for our library at home from Kim and Mark, Michelle and I were off to the coast! Continue reading “Cannon Beach 2017 Part I”
