Oregon - 4th Annual Last Ride of the Year (NEW LOCATION!)

Recommended Posts

!!EDIT - LOCATION HAS BEEN MOVED TO FLORENCE!!

Per ongoing tradition, I am calling for our annual Last Ride of the Year in Oregon. As usual this will be a RTE (ride to eat) on December 31. In 2016-2018 the lunchtime meeting place was Oceanside, near Tillamook. But in a group discussion last year it was decided to move the 2019 venue further south. With so many forum members in the Eugene and Salem areas, it was felt this might improve turnout.

If no one objects, I propose we meet at noon on December 31, 2019 at Mo's in Florence (1436 Bay Street, Florence, Oregon 97439). Mo's is a casual eatery overlooking the Siuslaw River. There is ample parking in front of the restaurant. Map Link 

We'll tell stories, admire farkles, snap a photo or two, and enjoy fresh seafood. I hope to see you there!

I do think it would be better centrally located tho...that's about 150 miles from me, and farther

from the medford-ashland area..... don't know how many members are down thataway, but if

there are some, it would be a heap closer to them....

I'll admit my reasons are selfish, as I always enjoy rides to the coast during that time of year. At least Newport is not as far away for you as Oceanside! 

You could do a nice ride up the valley in the morning via Territorial Hwy to OR-34 or US-20, and then close the loop with a return south on US-101 to OR-42.

Not real far, only about an hour. FWIW, it was the Portland-area guys who argued for Newport 🙂

yes I could do those distances IF  I had the time....I do not.....I cannot be away from the house for more than

about 4-5 hours at most, so will probably not make it..... my Wife needs me to be there most of the time, so....

 

if you guys could move it to Florence, 49 miles south, that would work .... let me know....

Florence is a possibility. Mo's is a good meeting spot there, I think. 

Portlandians: Any preference? I'm sure Ken and Victor would be fine with anything north of the CA border. 🙂

Hey everyone.  I don't have a preference.  As long as the weather holds, count me in!

Okay, it's been over a week and nobody has objected, so we are officially moved to Mo's in Florence. See you there!
