Day #70

It is with a combination of great joy and overwhelming sadness for me to say this: I am in Berkeley, CA. Yesterday I finished riding ~4,000 miles from Savannah, GA to Berkeley, CA (through 13 states) on a bicycle over the course of 70 days. I’m finished.

Me just arriving in the San . . . → Read More: Day #70

Day #62

I’m in Fallon, NV. This town has >7,500 people. It’s quite a shock to see so many buildings, business, and life after riding through barren Nevada desert for the past week. Last night we stayed outside a bar in Middlegate, NV–population: 17.

I think tomorrow is our last full day in Nevada. After that, I’ll . . . → Read More: Day #62

Day #56

I’m in Milford, UT.

2 days ago had a grueling start; 80% of the day was climbing. However, the last 25 miles consisted of one of the most spectacular downhill of this entire trip (up there next to Monarch Pass)–even though we had a headwind on the way down. It took us all the way . . . → Read More: Day #56

Day #54

I’m in Escalante, UT. I’ve been riding through the desert for several days now, so water has been scarce, libraries few and far between, and cell phone service has been non-existent. For the second time, my parents have called my phone which I cannot answer, left voice mails which I cannot check, and sent emails . . . → Read More: Day #54

Colorado Photos

Here’s the photos I took from Colorado. The state is BEAUTIFUL; there’s a ton!

Day #46

I’m in a KOA about a mile past Gunnison, CO. This place is super nice. It’s one of those RV camp sites that costs a fortune with so many luxuries, you can’t even call it camping. Thankfully, I just blend in with the other 26 MS guys, so I dodged the whole “payment” thing entirely . . . → Read More: Day #46

Day #43

I’m in Pueblo, CO. 2 days ago I decided to bike ahead of the MS group 60 miles for a total of 110 miles–my second century+ on this trip. As it turned out, the potentially terrible weather gave us a fantastic tail wind, so they all decided to stick it out and make it to . . . → Read More: Day #43

Day #37

I’m in Dighton, KS. Today the MS group (and myself) started in Larned, and we’re headed to Scott City–a ~120 mile trek! I only have another 20 miles to go, and got here just before 5. We were going to shoot for 150+ miles, but the crosswind today is killer (though, there were a couple . . . → Read More: Day #37

Day #34

I’m in Pittsburg, Kansas. 2 nights ago I slept in the park of Ash Grove, MO. I shared the space with Rocco–another cross-country cyclist going from San Diego, CA –> east. Check out his site at: whereisrocco.blogspot.com. Also, shout out to Turner–a local of Ash Grove; thanks for the great chat, man!

The next morning . . . → Read More: Day #34

Day #32

I’m in the Public Library of Marshfield, Missouri. Marshfield has a population >5,000, so it’s one of the larger towns that I’ve seen in a while. With the exception of the librarian Nazi, the people I’ve met so far in Marshfield (at the supermarket) have been great. About a dozen people asked about my trip . . . → Read More: Day #32
