This is it, sorry for the delay with uploading them, its been crazy getting back to New England and visiting family and friends. Again thank you to everyone who made this trip possible, comfortable and just plain amazing. Don’t hesitate to get in touch, I would love to help others plan their dream bike trip. Enjoy the photos!
As my aging Mac slowly uploads more than 1,300 photos I’m left thinking: Where did the summer go? I’ve made it back to Londonderry and Bianca will be settled in New England by this time next week. I’m sure a few looked over gems from SD cards not touched since Kansas City will make it up on here eventually, but for the time being it’s all really over. A humungous thanks for everyone who has donated and/or followed us here on our little blog. We successfully raised more than $5,000 for the Autism Society- surpassing our fundraising goal.. and the trip was pretty fun too. We’ll be around Boston/Cambridge for the foreseeable future and look forward to catching up with everyone. Our e-mail addresses are also in the sidebar to the right -> so if you’ve got any questions or anything about our trip.. Bianca reallllllyyyy misses being asked every single detail of our route and ride. Seriously though, if you or someone you know has any interest in learning about touring and most importantly touring safely we’d be happy to help. Thanks again- ride safe!
We’ll stop taking donations shortly after we arrive home and get settled. Very happy and proud with the $4,881 raised so far and would be thrilled to raise the final $119 as we return home. Couldn’t think of a better way to end the trip!
We’re getting on our bikes now and will arrive in San Francisco around lunchtime. We’ve had an unbelievable journey and want to thank everyone who has contributed to our adventure. If you haven’t donated to the Autism Society there is no better time than now- we’re so close to our goal, the beach, and the end of a saga that has been our entire lives for two months on the road more than a year of planning. Thanks again to our families, old friends who kept up with us, new friends from the road, Marty & Geekhouse, and most importantly our legs.
It is pretty wild to come from “The Lonliest Highway in America” to the proclaimed bike capital of the country (Davis, CA) in the matter of a week. It hit me when we pulled up to a stoplight and as I turned to give Bianca directions, I realized it there were another eight people on bikes waiting for the light with us. We’re having fun doddling around and soaking it up though- I am just shocked to learn that there is a place that I consider too laid back.
Our first couple of days in California have been beautiful and the riding has been enjoyable (there are bike lanes again)! We could be swimming tomorrow in the ocean but decided to split the 90 mile day up to slow down a bit and take in the last days of the trip. We had a great lunch today with Gregs cousin, Michael, and then had a refreshing swim in the American River. Lots of pictures coming soon!!
