Does anyone know the exact beach location in Florence Oregon for dipping the rear tire to start the Trans America ride?

Thanks,

Gear Talk / Brooks saddle dye.
« on: December 26, 2011, 10:23:58 am »
I'm breaking in a Brooks B17 saddle that is black color. Can anyone recommend a way to rid the saddle of the excess dye so my butt isnt black every time I ride. Riding with black bike shorts only is OK for now but won't be this summer when I travel long distance.

General Discussion / Astoria or Florence?
« on: May 31, 2011, 12:54:17 pm »
Do most Transamerica route riders start at Florence or Astoria? I'm leaving west to east next summer and I'm wondering if Starting at Florence is better because early June will still be the rainy season. Skipping the Astoria to Florence part will allow me to get through the mountains to dryer climate [I hope] faster. Any thoughts?

Routes / Southern Tier, Mesa Arizona.

Greetings bicycle travelers on the Southern Tier. Just want to send out an invitation when passing through Mesa Arizona. If you wish to take the time, stop in at 6424 East Main Street during business hours for a break. I can refill your water containers and I have a few energy bars on hand. I recently bought a Surly LHT and I'm hoping to do some touring in the coming years, starting next summer [2012]. Road biking for now. I'd like to hear how your trip is going when you stop in.  Hope to see a few of you.   Mark
