Bike Ride 2014!

I love Los Angeles. I think in a lot of ways it will be a place I will always consider my home (though “homebase” seems more accurate). The people, the weather, the culture, the opportunities… it is just an amazing place.

But, I’m nomadic and I need another adventure. After chatting with friends and working out a budget it looks like I will be doing another bike ride, but this one will implement the lessons learned on the last one and be more intensive in a lot of ways. Right now I plan on it being about a year long, about 15,000 miles, and cover all 48 lower states.

The biggest change is the wonderful addition of my partner on this ride. As an avid cyclist she was intrigued by my cross-continent ride last summer and thrilled when it became obvious that we wanted to go on this journey together. This will obviously change things and provide opportunities for amazing highs… but it can (and probably will) put us under emotional and physical stress. Luckily we are pretty great together and our introverted laid back nature makes us a pretty good team and I think we will be great adventurers.

So, if you live somewhere and want us to crash on your couch or know of something awesome we can see please let me know. A rough route is below but realistically we will often change course on a whim to have adventures (and google map has a limited number of destination points you can put in).

  1. Awesome, man. Indefinite bicycle touring seems to be a great lifestyle, and that’s cool that u actually found a partner that will do it with you.

  2. This is amazing! By the time you guys hit the road we will be in our house. Please feel free to stop by, whether you need a night to rest, or a cool drink. We will be in Lake Stevens, about 35 miles north of downtown Seattle. We would love to host you!

  3. When to come to chicago, chainlink.org is a GREAT online forum/website. I bet if you posted something there about couch surfing or needing a place to stay, you’ll get some responses!
