Musings about fun between my legs

Back on the Road

| 9 Comments

While I haven’t actually been “off the road” these past 2 years, I haven’t written any blog posts.  It is my intention to once again write about my/our adventures on the bike.

First, beginning August 21 (after the eclipse), Don and I will be on board the American Empress paddlewheeler with our tandem bicycle on a Santana Adventure tour.  Stops on the week-long cruise, with cycling interludes, include Astoria, Oregon, Mount St. Helens, Columbia Gorge, Cascade Lock, Columbia Gorge, The Dalles, Hood River Valley, Pendleton, Lewiston, Idaho, and Clarkson, Washington.  Look for lots of photos.

Following the cruise, around the Labor Day holiday, we will be with my brother and his wife, as well as our daughter and her family enjoying family time in SunRiver, Oregon.

The BIG adventure begins officially on September 15 in Anacortes, WA, as I begin the WomanTours Pacific Coast tour:  37 days through Washington, Oregon, south to Ventura, California.
