Bike Trip America to Depart Oregon for New York this Week

Bike Trip America is a Charity Cross Country Bicycle Trip brought to you by the Scouts of Crew #255, Astoria OR. Chartered by the American Legion.

In a post from Bike Trip America’s facebook page….”Officially, we will be leaving exactly June 18th, 2015 at 10 AM from the Peter Iredale entrance to the beach. Public is welcome to join us for the ride from there to Astoria (11 miles) or just send us off. A little before 12 PM we will arrive at the American Legion in Astoria where there will be a barbecue lunch at 12 PM. Only about 40 burgers are available up for grabs, but if you show up you will likely be able to get one. By 1 PM we plan to be on the road again exiting Astoria from highway 30 to stay at a Legion post in Clatskanie which will be hosting us for our first night on the road. It will be a rather hilly first day, but the mileage shouldn’t be too tough.”
