Saturday night in Cottage Grove was one to remember. Those who ventured to Main Street had an opportunity to try on a toga and pose on the hood of The Deathmobile from Animal House (the final scene from this cinematic masterpiece was filmed there). Others stayed close to camp and paid a visit to The Blogmobile where they shared their Cycle Oregon war stories with the world through the magic of social media. Evening announcements contained a moment of silence followed by an emotional performance of America the Beautiful as the crowd reflected on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
On Sunday the riders were treated to cooler temperatures for their long and scenic ride to Reedsport where they had the bucolic back roads all to themselves. In town they were greeted with a warm welcome and a cold carton of chocolate milk. Those who ventured into Bedrock’s Chowder House were rewarded with some incredible local seafood.
Bandon, here we come!
