Each post will start with some stats, a brief story of the day, and perhaps a photo or two so our family and friends can share our attempt to bike across the country - we hope you enjoy it! We are also writing it for ourselves - imagining ourselves sitting in our rocking chairs 20 years from now and re-living this adventure (sweet, huh?). SO - we may write more than you want to read; that part will follow the quick review of the day. Feel free to read it all, of course! DON'T WORRY if we don't post on a given day - it probably just means that we can't access the Internet that day; if at all possible, we'll give a family member a call on any such day so someone will know where we are!
We're a couple of senior cyclists (Riley is 70 and Becky's 64) who planned to bike from Seaside, OR to Bar Harbor, ME, starting 5/9/10. Near the end of our trip we decided to go to Portland, ME, instead, which worked out better for us because of some other obligations.
