Today we put our bicycles together and practiced riding. Everyone has really nice bicycles and gear. I can tell they are taking this Trek seriously. In the morning we cycled around Seaside, OR and talked about bike safety. Around 4pm we decided to go on our first real ride. Another town called Cannon Beach was 10 miles south. That town was our goal. Even though it was a short ride it was a good test of

our mettle because of the hills. Once in Cannon Beach we explored the town, got some fudge, and saw Haystack Mountain. (It's a big boulder in the water) Then it started to rain so we headed back. We are looking forward to dinner; chicken strips, salad, and spaghetti. Also tonight our group will be complete when David and Julia join us at 8 pm. Tomorrow we start for real. We will dip our bikes into the Pacific Ocean and head east through the Columbia River Gorge. Only some 3,500 miles to go. Everyone is in high spirits. -- submitted by Jacob Brown - Trip Leader
