In the morning we followed Highway 30 to the mouth of the Columbia River. The ride was hilly, not flat as expected and it had a lot of traffic, arrival time in Astoria was 2 PM. Astoria is the official end of the TransAm and we expected more of the town than just Fish&Chips! Anyways, our Goal was the Ocean in Seaside and in addition Daniel and Dries were already waiting there! As expected the wind was coming from the North and blew us along the coast. Upon arrival, I took a short Bath in the Pacific, before we were going to a famous Warmshower host! The host was not even there but 5 other cyclists! In the evening we enjoyed the Photoshooting at the Beach with Dries and Daniel, watched the sunset in the Pacific and had Beer&Bicycling stories in the evening! Felt like vacation!
