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!!!


  1. Looks like you are planning on riding through the south - that sounds smart since you're starting off in the winter - wouldn't want to go through anywhere with a lot of bad weather. I have done some pretty long bike trips, but I've also done them on a folding bike so that it's easier to travel say by bus or train (and sometimes car) when I have to.

  2. Thanks for the comment Chris. I've done a bit of research on the weather patterns and averages for the route I'm taking and if this winter is similar to past winters, I should be okay with temperatures ranging from upper 40's to lower 60's. Nights will be cold but I have a pretty good sleeping bag so hopefully I'll stay warm. The folding bikes are certainly cool and a heck of a lot easier to travel with then mine! I'm having a bike shop box mine up for about 50 bucks but at least I don't have to deal with it.

  3. With a good sleeping bag, you should be alright - as long as you stay dry, I think, at least. I'll check for your posts once you start the trip!
