Three Del Norte County men got on their bicycles recently and rode the length of the Oregon Coast during a 360-mile trek from Astoria to Smith River.

Longtime friends Russ Mont­gomery, 63, Pat Finley, 62, and Tom Martinelli, 56, were looking for an opportunity to physically challenge themselves and have an experience they will not forget anytime soon.

They even made a new friend in a fellow bike rider, a pilot for Alaska Airlines who joined them all the way to Smith River.

The 5 1/2-day trip occurred Sept. 9-14.

“It was probably the most physical exertion I’ve put into a six-day period in my entire life,” Finley said.

Montgomery is a retired dentist who worked for 30 years in Brookings. Finley is a retired Del Norte High principal and Martinelli is a doctor and the  Del Norte County public health officer.

The friends trained for about three months to get themselves into shape.

This was the first time Finley and Martinelli had tried such a long bike ride. Montgomery and his two sons rode from Brookings to Sonoma and back in 1992.

“He was with an older crowd this time,” Finley said with a laugh.
