East Coast with a riding partner

From chase team to riding partner, here we go. Thanks Creean for the challenge to both of us! I get to head back out after 7 years to see if I can make a big ride again and Creean gets to go out ou the road for some incredible adventures.

We are going to be doing the Adventure Cycling Association East cost ride ( modified ). We will have about 1500 miles from Portland ME to Raleigh NC. If all goes well we'll get to make a loop around the Outer Banks.

The fun starts with a long travel day from Denver to Portland on June 27th and riding out of Portland on June 28.  We'll hit Raleigh on July 20th just in time for the Dave Matthews Band concert to celebrate the big trip.

Special thanks to "headquarters" (Kelly) for incredible support on this adventure once again! Kelly, Creean and I go all the way back to a dinner at Bravo about 7 and half years ago when I suggested that I wanted to go on a bike ride across the US ( I was the crazy one then), and now... I converted one of them to the dark side.

Plans are set, one of us still needs to find some transportation here soon so she can get some practice in that is not on a trainer.

More to come, hope you enjoy the updates!

  3. I’ll be thinking of you the whole time and hoping for good weather and safe travels. Love ya both.


  4. Awesome! Looking forward to following the adventure! Stay safe!
