This blog has been mostly dormant the past few years, but hopefully that is going to change. Originally, this was about my bike rides and other outdoor activities. That will still be the case.
As I write this, I am in the throes of planning a cross-country bike ride. I will be documenting here the preparation, process, and actual ride. This is as much for my recall as your enjoyment. I hope neither of us are disappointed!
About the ride, dubbed BikeUSA 2019, I am flying out to San Jose on May 5, 2019, and riding back to Massachusetts. My goal is to make it to Sturbridge, MA, by August 2, in time to ride in this year’s PMC. That will take me all the way to the Atlantic Ocean in Provincetown, at the tip of Cape Cod.
This is a ride I have dreamed of making since high school. I finally realized if not now, when? So here I go.
My wife Jennifer is supportive, for which I am very grateful. After all, the burden will fall on her to maintain the house and walk Ernie. So I am very aware and appreciative of what she is doing for me. (Fortunately, walking Ernie is usually a gift and not a burden.)
Read on for all the details. Let me know what you think.
