Yikes, It’s Almost Here!

Although I am training for this awesome bicycle ride, I am also doing other things…like motorcycling and flying with Dan. Of course, both motorcycling and flying involve stopping somewhere to eat…

The other day we were at one of our local eateries sitting out on the deck. Another motorcycle couple came and sat at the table next to us. A conversation was started and the fact I’m riding my bicycle across the country came up. It turns out the two ladies have done the Cinderella century so they know what it’s like to write a 100 miles in one day. The husband of one woman asked my name, which I gave him. He then said he would be praying for me this summer. I’ll take all the help I can get.

Only 14 days until Dan and I head out for Astoria. I took the bike to the shop today, along with the required maintenance list from America by Bicycle. They will have it ready for me on Monday. In the meantime, I had to get the saddle back on my touring bike so I’d have something to ride this weekend. It wasn’t too difficult. Even I could figure it out. (yay me ~ with silly grin)

Several folks have asked about the route and the distance. The attached list should answer those questions for the curious. The distance is 3,653 miles if I don’t get lost.



female, married, in love, beautiful grown daughters, great and large extended family spread all over the US, enjoying my life, my favorite place to be is outside (unless its cold and wet).
