Month: July 2014

For *Hundreds of Miles

I’m doing it. I’m going to try to do it. Fingers crossed I do it.

Saturday, I leave for a trip that I’ve been wanting to take for a while now. I will be attempting to ride my bicycle from Vancouver, British Columbia to Los Angeles. It will take me just over a month to do it which will depend on a number of things. It will be 1,800~ miles of sights, challenges, food, pedaling, scenery, rain, pedaling, cold, trees, oceans, and pedaling.

Below is the documentary that made me want to do this originally:

This is my route:

Pacific Coast Route

This is my state as of today:

Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit.

I will begin pedaling on August 4th and am hoping to blog throughout the trip when wifi is available. I’m terrified nervous excited for this trip and I have no idea what to expect. I will be camping in State Parks all along the way. Showering when I can. Shaving never. Meeting people every chance I get. This is a thing. People do this…. maybe just not the people we know.
