The ride to the ocean was gnarly. We sent out all our surf stuff with friends who were driving out the day before. We left portland at 6:30 am , It was cold and dark. We thought we had dressed warm enough but we were so wrong. it's been so nice lately we thought the beach would be the same but it got colder as we got closer. We stopped and got coffee for an hour and got warm. The road was pretty bumpy the whole way too. We had to wait in line for 40 min to get to the beach and when we got there the waves were not so good. We hung out for a bit then realized we had 3 hours of cold ,dark riding to do so we left. The ride home was a test of endurance for sure, I wanted to camp on the side of the road a few times.
