the ride started as a simple idea like most things do. i wanted to go across the country on a bike. i have looked into various travel groups that do it. i have even become inspired by someone who did it 35 years ago when he was my age. after putting it off and finding reasons to say i wouldn’t be able to go this year, i decided it was time. after discussing it with friends, coworkers and my significant other, they all pushed me to do it faster and better than i thought i would. every day it’s becoming bigger than i thought. seattle to key west. that’s the route and i’ll be on a bike.
the ride took a total of 51 days, and began on july 26th, 2015. posts for the day were posted the following morning. below is a list of the posts created for the ride, during the ride and after the ride.
