The Pedalshift Project 112: Tour Journals Vol 9: Olympic Peninsula (Part 2)

In the second of a two-parter, it’s Pedalshift Tour Journals: Vol. 9: Olympic Peninsula! Join me and my trusty Brompton for 4 days of transit-aided bicycle touring from Washington, DC to Seattle to the Olympic Peninsula and wrapping things up in Astoria, Oregon. This week features a more-challenging-than-expected short mileage day, a visit to Kurt Cobain’s riverfront hangout, and a long bridge serving as a finish line.

Live Baby Live

Tentative date: Thursday April 12, 8pm ET… in the meantime, let me know what you want the topic on the next live show to be! And hey, new tour announcement!

The Journal – Olympic Peninsula bike tour

Some statistics for you:

Day 3 – 36 miles
Day 4 – 51 miles

Nearly 8% of that 51 miles was over the Columbia River! The Astoria-Megler bridge across the Columbia is 21,474 feet or 4 miles/6.5 km long. It’s the longest continuous truss bridge in North America.
