Past Rides

Portland to San Francisco


Distance covered: 650 miles

Punctures: 15! We made a huge mistake when fixing the original flat tyre and ended up with numerous ‘snake bites’

Ride highlights: The Oregon coastline, the Redwoods and the Avenue of Giants, cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge

Ride low points: The continual, almost daily punctures, the cold nights, breaking the tent on the second night and falling over too often because I was not used to clip in shoes!
