Grand Ronde, OR to Rockaway Beach, OR
Today is the day. Landlocked since turning our backs and riding away from the Atlantic Ocean 60 days ago, today the majestic Pacific Ocean is within our grasp. Although not the end of our journey, a mere 30 miles separates us from successfully cycling from sea to shining sea. You'd think we'd be hyped up on excitement and anticipation. In reality, a mixture of emotions mask themselves in a calm nervous atmosphere. That is at least until the salty coastal air penetrates our nostrils and the last hill standing between us and the ocean falls behind.
