Bike Trip Photos: Oregon

I still haven't posted pictures from most of our bike trip, so I'm going to try to catch up on that. In this post: pictures from Oregon.

Here's an example of one of our campsites, at Sunset Bay State Park. Here I am, dutifully cooking breakfast, while Ryan is off taking photos. Thanks for the help, Ryan! Just kidding, breakfast was always really easy, since it was just oatmeal.

Here's Ryan snacking on some blackberries that he found on the side of the road.

And here are a couple of Ryan's pictures. Even bicycles get tired sometimes!

Here we have Ryan letting out some of his energy on the beach at Harris Beach State Park, our last stop in Oregon:

And finally, I leave you with a selection of pictures of the beautiful Oregon coastline:

I used a Trek 520 with Ortlieb panniers, which worked really well.

I think the main thing I learned is that sleeping gear is really important. I started with a foam ground pad, but then switched halfway through the trip to an inflatable thermarest, and that made me much more comfortable. Also, I had a pretty bulky sleeping bag, and that made packing a lot harder — so I think it's worth getting a bag that compresses really well.
