Miss Oceanside, Lauryn Moses, Training for Bike the Coast - Taste the Coast

Lauryn Moses, Miss Oceanside 2010 and a true novice cyclist, is training for the inaugural Bike the Coast – Taste the Coast event on November 6, 2010. Here is her blog entry on “Gearing up for Bike the Coast!”

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to update you on a really cool event that I have the pleasure of being a part of. Bike The Coast is an event sponsored by the City of Oceanside Bicycle Committee, Main Street Oceanside and the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce. The event takes place in Oceanside on November 5th and 6th and will include a bike ride that starts and finishes at the Oceanside Pier along with live music, food, and a whole lot of fun! Hopefully, the ride will get more people in Oceanside on bikes, although we must be doing pretty well already since the League of American Bicyclists has deemed us a ‘Bronze Level Bicycling Community’.There are courses for everyone, whether you’re an experienced cyclist or a beginner, beach cruiser or BMX biker and all ages are welcome. The proceeds from the ride support the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition and I’m also riding to support the American Cancer Society.

So, I’ve been training for the past couple weeks and I just completed my online bike education class! Obviously it’s a lot easier to learn something out of a textbook than it is to learn by actually doing it, so while I will say that while the online courses weren’t too difficult, I am anticipating that the the second part of the course, the actual road skills interactive part, will be considerably more difficult. It’s like Driver’s Ed vs. Driver Training. And I must say, while I aced Driver’s Ed I never even TOOK Driver’s Training. The class is on Saturday so wish me luck! And keep checking back on my blog or on my FB page to keep updated on Bike The Coast!
