Great blog to follow!

"IF you can be said to be hurrying on a cross-country bicycle trip, for about two weeks I hurried to Pittsburgh. I pushed through some dreary weather in Michigan and Ohio, climbed the roller-coaster foothills of the Appalachians and battled traffic and chewed up roads as I entered the city. From there, though, with the end of a ride that began almost three months ago looming, I slowed down and started on an oblique route home."

More two-wheeled journeys!

And KUDOS to Oregon! "The Oregon State Parks and Recreation Commission has unanimously voted
to designate five new state scenic bikeways: the Sisters to Smith Rock
State Park, Metolius River Loops, McKenzie Pass, Blue Mountain Century,
and Old West scenic bikeways. "A section of the Old West overlaps with
the TransAmerica Bicycle Trail," Alexandra said. "We're the only state
in the country to officially designate scenic bikeways. Oregon is a
pioneer in fusing recreation, transportation, and the economic benefits
of this kind of tourism." The bikeway program is a partnership involving
Cycle Oregon, Travel Oregon, the Oregon Department of Transportation,
and Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. Learn more at this link:"
