I have always admired those cyclist who peddle miles and miles exploring the country by bicycle. What an adventure! I met two gentlemen in their seventies that cycled from Virginia to Oregon. Florence was their final destination. They told me about warmshowers.org and I was sold. I thought what a wonderful way to meet healthy, dedicated people with a mission and story. I registered on the warmshowers website and w/in 6 hour Ii had an email from team timu needing a place to crash. It was their first warmshowers too. What came to such a surprise is I am the only place in florence as a warmshowers host!!! With so many cyclists riding 101 I bet there will be many more guests. I am inspired to write a warmshowers info letter to the editor of siuslaw news. Who knows maybe florence will step up and support these cyclists peddling their heart out and facing their fears each day.
