Halsey to Coburg, OR

This was our last day for the tour. Of the 19 cyclists on our tour, six of us have Bike Fridays.

Several of us followed Susan's alternate route from the motel and avoided the HILL as well as that awful highway we rode in on. Those who chose the hill route enjoyed their ride as well, the route we took was completely car free and flat and much to our liking. There was quite a chill in the morning air so we were once again bundled up in warm wear.

Had to have a snack stop of course.
Link the stud was directly across from our snack spot and peeking through the fence with curiosity in his eye. He was quite entertaining as he ran around a few times and returned to look at us, then when I waved at him he gave a long and loud whinny.

This was the shortest day of our tour, and the sun barely had time to come out for us before we were near the end. And then someone said the word Bakery.

We said our goodbyes at the park and each went our separate ways. Susan and I will make our way to her fly fishing outing weekend in Redmond, OR. Our first stop is here in Eugene where the Bike Friday manufacturer is located. I had prearranged to bring my bike there for a handlebar exchange and have just a few small things I want to have them check out.

We dropped off my bike for work in the morning, checked in to our motel, and walked about town for a bit. We had to at least get to (tax free) REI while are in town. Eugene can be thought of as a throw back to the Hippy era, and we strolled through what is surely true Hippyville, which we both rather like a lot.

Our next adventure will begin soon ;'-)
