The Best Part of Touring (for me) is Getting E-Mails Like This:
I hope this email finds you in good spirits.
I do indeed remember passing Bianca and yourself on a lonesome road in Kansas. It remains a regret of the trip that we didn’t just call it a day and decide to have a a few beers with you both.
The cycle across the US is by far the most wonderful experience we’ve ever had. We’d do it again in a heartbeat. I hope the ride was just as much fun for the two of you.
I must also say in the 4500 miles we cycled, we didn’t see any bicycle that were as fine as yours. Showing off the photos of your bikes to the lads in the bike shop where I work impressed them. The Icarus feather was immediately recognized.
I do have a few pairs of striped socks to send to you, as promised. Should I forward them to Geekhouse C/O Greggles?
Anyway, if you make it to Melbourne, Australia, anytime in the future, there’s a cold beer waiting for you.
(and yes, that is a Jack Taylor tandem in the header).
