When I set off from Bellingham, WA on September 25th to raise money for the Hopi Cancer Assistance Fund, I will be riding as part of a womens-only bike tour organized by WomanTours. This is 4th tour with Women Tours. My first ride was in 2008.
During this month-long, 1,539 mile Pacific Coast Tour we will bike across Washington, Oregon and California, through national parks, national recreation areas, national historic monuments, numerous state parks, museums, forts, lighthouses, small towns and bustling cities, including San Francisco. I'm excited about the ride, but also a little intimidated when I look at the map and see how far it is I will need to ride.
During the 30-day tour, we will average 55 miles a day, but as you can see from the itinerary below, there are 4 days when we will be riding 80 miles (I hoping part of this is downhill and with a tailwind!).
