Iconic Moments: Cycle Oregon Days 1-4

1 Comment

Many people, places and experiences comprise the treasure trove of memories at Cycle Oregon here are a few iconic moments from Days 1-4.

Steve Schultz nightly messages relay stories and key messages.

Of all the nightly entertainment, “Castletown” was the best for this Irish girl.

Lovely neighbors and friends (Like the Gibsons) cheering us on as we approach a 3-Mile climb up a hill with an 11% grade. Or maybe they were shouting, “No, turn back while you still can!”???

Then we faced a one-hour que as Cycle Oregon staffers limited the number of riders that could descend at the same time (13% grade).

Thank you to the librarians at Langlois for opening their doors to us and PROVIDING WIFI!

Superman on the scene to take down tents and remind us to not take ourselves too seriously.

First-time rider, Linda Godfrey, embraces the adventure each day, proudly representing in her pink, white and black jersey.

Taking advantage of our friend and official CO Photographer, we coax Rohith Gunawardena to join us at Bandon Ocean Wayside for a few photos. His will be even better – Thanks, Ro!

Ah, the goodies at rest stops that surprise and energize.

Adam Strochak and Larry Radetich demonstrate their version of what a rest day should look like. (The guys are from Bethesda, MD and San Francisco, CA, respectively).

Thank you, Melanie Wood of Happy Feet Photography, for this terrific composition
