October’s outing is the storied Bike Hike and family overnight at Fort Stevens
State Park. Starting at the old Crab Broiler restaurant just east of Seaside, we bike
18 miles north to the park. At the weigh station on Hwy 101, riders (young and old)
measure themselves on the truck scale, sack lunches are hungrily devoured and then it's on the road
again to Fort Stevens to camp for the night.
This is one outing where families are encouraged to participate, either by riding, camping or both. The park features miles of bike paths, the remains of the shipwreck Peter Iredale and Battery Russell (the only mainland U.S. installation to be fired upon during WW II), an ideal venue for an epic game of capture the flag.
It’s fall, it’s Oregon – expect the weather to be anything from blue sky mid-60’s gorgeous to coastal horizontal, torrential, cold rain. Remember, BE PREPARED isn’t just some rusty old motto.
