    Articles like this is why Bethany and I follow your stories like other people keep up with celebraties. We love you guys and reading about all your trips. It has been my dream since I started building bikes at 11 to tour like you do. I always wanted to be a modern day tom sawyer on a bike and your stories and updates let us live that part of our life we have been dying to do.

  • Ah… I saw you guys out there and wondered who you were reporting for. Nice pics and post. Can’t believe you rode to the start of the ride! I found day 1 super challenging.

  • It was great seeing all those riders in town. I saw hundreds of them coming down from Alsea Falls as I was riding up the opposite way. I really appreciated the shouts of encouragement as I was sweating up the very steep grade on my loaded touring bike. I could have done without the one girl who shouted ‘almost there!” when I still had a mile to go, but hey that mile went by really fast for her. When I got to the top I was treated to a free lunch as I was just another guy in cycle clothes. No one even seemed to think it was weird when I parked my fully loaded bike next to their carbon speedsters.
    I have done organized rides, but nothing like this. Hats off to Cycle Oregon for putting on such a great party.

    Hey! We saw you guys at McMenamins, busy poking away at your laptops… Glad to see you were actually putting up this stuff!

    Come to Kansas some day and do the Bike Across Kansas ride. Lots and lots of long, rolling hills (and usually wind!), but it’s not as “flat” as most people think. Love your site. Thinking about doing some short tours to see if longer ones would be something that suits me. Your videos have certainly inspired me! Thanks to you both!

    We also rode to the ride on Friday, a serpentine, but leisurely 110 miles from Burlingame in Portland. I think you missed something special not doing the long ride Saturday, The Alsea valley was beautiful with lots of trees for shade during the climbs. Your photos are excellent.

    Where are your Bromptons? I thought it was a real bike for commuting and the real journey. I miss them in your posts.
    Greetings from Poland! You are both beautiful inspiration. Thank you and ask for more 🙂

  • […] Day two we had cloud-cover most of the day and just a touch of rain after lunch. When I was putting together the time-lapse video of day two I noticed there’s a brief cameo by Russ and Laura from The Path Less Pedaled! […]

    Good to see you guys on some of our Yamhill County backroads. They really are nice to ride. I’ll send a photo of Janet’s Budda’s Eyes headbadge from Wales!

    I did three days of RAGBRAI with my sister a few years ago (although we carried our own stuff). Really enjoyed the rolling community that a large ride provides. Since we weren’t riding very fast, I was able to strike up many great conversations with those slowly passing us.


    I hope to get a chance for that kind of ride again some day.

    I love to bicycle but am good for only about 35 miles per day when I do go. What an exhilarating way to travel anywhere, and so good for the body and soul. I rejoice when I travel to a new city and see a lot of bikers on the road.

    Laura, I love your video on You Tube, where you explain the features of the roomette on Amtrak, the Pacific Parlour Car, the showers, and so on. What a personality!

    Huntington, WV needs a presentation for PATH, a 26 mike bike trail now being built. PATH is short for the Paul Ambrose Trail for Health, named after Dr. Ambrose, a promising young physician who was killed in the terrorist attacks of September 2001. Just Google PATH, and go to the contacts link.
