I was not a bike rider. I was a support person. I drove the RV part of the time, prepared meals, did lots of clean up. I pretty much traded my mom-to-4-children duties for mom-of-4-adults duties. My mom helped with these duties. She helped with all the shopping and meal prep and cleaning and everything.
Dave was a bike rider, motor bike that is. Along with the bicycles we trailered his motorcycle to our starting point and he served as the runner for the trip. He scouted out destinations, delivered fresh water and warm clothes when necessary and pretty much watched over the safety of the riders.
The starting point for the bike trip was the Washington side of the Astoria, Oregon bridge. The ending point was the California border on the south side of Brookings, Oregon. To complete the trip the bikers followed the Oregon Coast Bike Route, a 380 mile ride through the beautiful cliffs, forests and beaches of the Oregon Coast. They did it in 5 days. That's an average of 76 miles of riding per day!
