One of our bike club friends did an all women cross-country ride--dipping tires in the Atlantic at the beginning and the Pacific in the end. Her presentation to the club was inspiring, and humbling. It was a 60th birthday gift to herself. I admire people who do what I dream.

Interesting blog and great pics. I hope Marty's knee is taken care of and he can continue.

I subscribed to the blog and will check in every so often.

Thanks for sharing. I've subscribed to their rss feed.

I have a friend who posted a link on another site about a guy riding from Hong Kong to Bangkok (India is next) and I've been wondering where to find some more.

Our friend who owns half the business with us left last Wednesday to fly out to San Diego for his cross-country trip. He started out Thursday and will eventually end up back close to home, in St. Augustine, FL (3110 miles).

We sent out a "care package" for him & his buddy yesterday. They are somewhere in AZ. You can check out their blog & their location (something with GPS & a computer "ping") at Their blog is at (or something like that - our site links to all their stuff).

It's pretty cool. Initially, many who knew his riding style were betting on how long he'd last before catching a plane home... He's known for fast starts, but cramping over any long distance. It was a rough first week, but they are settling in and cranking away.
