Total Miles: 
265
Number of Days: 
10

This tour was delayed a couple of weeks as I was recovering from being hit by a car on July 30, 2012. It also involved a new bike. The Surly Disc Trucker which I got in April was now wrecked, and in it's place I now had a new Soma Saga touring bike. The Saga was really the bike I wanted and this would be it's maiden voyage.

This would be a door-to-door tour from my house in Corvalis. I knew I'd be dealing with some traffic and unpleasant roads heading north through the Willamette Valley, but I really wanted to make it a loop. As it turned out the Banks-Vernonia trail, and Stub Stewart park were well worth the ride.

Once on the coast I'll be roughly following the Oregon Coast Bike Route.

My actual route was shorter than the map on the right as I cut over from Waldport to Corvallis on highway 34.
