Uphill and Against the Wind - TransAm E-W
By Dave T

Day 83: Beverly Beach to Cape Lookout SP

Thursday August 7, 1986, 60 miles (97 km) - Total so far: 4,437 miles (7,141 km)

The morning was chilly and the fog was thick as pea soup. The weather cleared to warm and sunny for about 8 hours. I traveled north to Cape Lookout, the coast route took me over 2 good climbs, no sweat, and the climbs were nothing. I really enjoyed the ride despite the headwind, and finally the weather was perfect.

I met many other cyclists on the coast, they were all going south. I never really got to ride with anybody, just a quick talk on the side of the road. The coast is an awesome place to bike tour, fabulous scenery and friendly people.

I arrived in Cape Lookout State Park and got setup in the hiker biker area. I didn't do much, rode around the park and had a beer or two with some other cyclists. I've got to start thinking about getting my bike packed up when I get to Portland. I'll have to look for a bike shop to get a box when I get into town.

[Author's Note:] - I have a few more days to ride. When I'm done, I'm going to write an epilogue +20, where I will have a few interesting things to say about riding the Trans America Trail.
