Ahhh, remember July? Shawn Kilmer does. He road his bicycle from Portland to Cannon Beach.
And he made a video of the adventure: Portland To Canon Beach By Bicycle, July 2010 [sic]
At least a year of wanting to make the ride from the Willamette Valley to the Oregon coast by bicycle, finally decided I had the time. The ONLY drawback was not having a saddlebag rack setup and carrying everything on my back. I tried to go as minimal as I could, jersey for sun, thermal for normal weather, sweater for cold, bike shorts, jean shorts (for chillin’), sleeping bag, food, sunglasses. Just that small amount of stuff was still borderline on being too much weight to have on your back for a ride like this.
