My daughter Catalina and I are planning a tandem tour with my father from Astoria Oregon to San Francisco California in June 2013. I made this trip in 1986 riding solo in 8 days after graduating from college. Here I am on the right with two other cyclists that I picked up near San Francisco. Hard to believe this photo was taken 27 years ago. I did the ride on my old Raleigh International with toe clips, tennis shoes, and ordinary hiking shorts averaging about 100 miles per day and mostly stealth camping when I wasn't near a hiker biker campground in the evening.
