Day 4 & 5: Heading toward the coast

Today we rode 69 miles from Bremerton to Elma, WA.  It was a beautiful ride with only a few steep hills. One 1/2 mile portion of the ride was at an 11% grade and most of us ended up walking our bikes up the hill. Huffing and puffing my way up a hill isn't much fun, but the reward is the lovely downhill descent that following. It was a long day I didn't get to take as many photos as I would have liked, but I've included a few below. 




At the end of tomorrow's 84 mile ride will finally arrive at the Pacific Coast. Whoo-hoo! Unfortunately, our hotel doesn't have internet so I won't be able to update my blog until Monday. But for anyone tracking our progress, the map below shows both tomorrow's route from Elma to Long Beach, WA and Monday's ride from Long Beach, WA to Cannon Beach, OR.

    Angela stopped for a Mocha at the South Bend Wa. Coffee Company at 10:00 AM 9/30/12. Then in a few minutes boarded her bike enroute todays destination of Long Beach Washington. While here she described her reasons for this long distance ride. A great cause.
    We're all overwhelmed. ;-)
