It was back in 2007 when I had the idea of bicycling across the United States. Now it’s eight years later and I seemed to have let myself down.
This summer, however, will be the Summer of Cycling. There is no better time to do something than now, as I have learned. Originally, I wanted to go with a friend. It seems like this is will not happen now that it’s been eight years. One thing I have learned is that if you really want to do something, go ahead and do it, even if it means you have to do it alone.
It takes about a little over two months on average to cycle from Allentown, PA, to Portland, OR. I will be mainly riding on the TransAmerica Trail that goes from Virginia to Oregon. The trip will start in mid-June and I plan on arriving in Oregon sometime in late August or early September.
So let this post be my official announcement of the trip. It will be another great adventure of a lifetime!
