Mapped out route I will be taking

The following is a link to a picture of the mapped out route I will be following on this trip.  Obviously this is just a glimpse of the general direction.  The maps I have are quite detailed and actually have turn-by-turn directions!

Planes, trains, and automobiles....and bicycles

Well I am exactly one month away from beginning the journey of a lifetime by riding my bicycle across our great country.  Over 3,200 miles from St. Augstine, FL to San Diego, CA.  Most people call me crazy...but I can't wait!!!

Check out the article in the Tiverton/Little Compton Patch newsletter and website

Hopefully a lot of people will see this and help the cause.  It is the spirit of the holidays after all!! 

Had a nice 2 hour ride today in my apartment while watching a movie.  Used my new bike shoes and pedals for the first time.  The shoes literally clip into the pedal and can only be removed by twisting outward.  Quite a funny feeling being attached to the bike but it does make pedaling a little easier.  Glad my first experience with them was on a the stationary trainer though!  I already plan on falling at least once when I try these things while moving.  I'll try to take a video of it when I do!
