Two years ago, my greatest cycling feat to date was a 13-mile jaunt on a single-speed banana seat Huffy along the Jordan River Corridor. In Fall 2003, I completed a 3,200 mile fully-loaded independent bicycle tour from Salt Lake City, Utah to Syracuse, New York.
Through these pages we hoped to form a picture of what it is like to cross the country on a bicycle. The "Journal Archive" contains a backlog of journal entries posted along the road. Check out the "Bike Touring Articles" page for in-depth stories about our trip. The "Photo Archive" page contains the photo essays of our transcontinental tour. The "About the Trip"page shows a map of our route, along with our daily mileage, camp spots and weather. Our cross-country tour may be over but the adventure isn't. Click on "Current Postings" to read the weblog of where we are now.
This web site is also home to our past adventures. “Road Trip” is the story of our summer-long travels throughout the sunlit wilderness of Alaska in a custom Ford van. “Whitewater” is the story of a 45-day rafting trip down the Green and Colorado rivers and “Backpacking” details several amazing overnight hiking trails in the American West. Also read about our first bicycle tour, a 600 mile loop through the redrock desert and towering mountains of Utah and Colorado in September 2002.
