Since the declaration of the dream bike trip, a few strides, so far.
Articles exist (thanks Google) by–mostly–men who’ve toured solo or with a group across the country. However, Pippa made her cross-country debut.
There is a national route map. Route 40…possibilities
Started training (biking to work, swimming, running)
Researching equipment — is a hammock better than a tent? Do I really need solar powered chargers from REI?
Next set of goals: independent funding, bike rides around the city and the region, and keeping the dream alive.
Those who are touring, I salute you.
