After 6 months there is still new to see…

We looked at the calendar yesterday, and sure as hell, it has been 6 months since we moved here!! March 23rd, on a rainy cold day in Mountlake Terrace, we loaded the U-Haul and headed south. There are those who believed we would run out of things to do and be bored…

Under 200 miles???

Yesterday morning I was taking a quick ride to Newport. Michelle was getting her hair done, and I was riding south to meet her. We were going to drive back together and stop at the grocery store. It was a gorgeous day to ride! Blue sky, no wind and  the whales were out

I was cruising along when realized that Saturday was the first day of September! And as the title says, I had ridden less than 200 miles during the month of August…. Continue reading “Under 200 miles???”

Then Friday, Rob and I successfully pedaled 106 miles from Portland to Pacific City

Initially, I was supposed to work Monday, jumping right back into the grind, but the corporate gods smiled on me, and I was able to sneak in one more day off…. Continue reading “Two very different walks!”

Its Becoming a Habit!

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!
