Reliving Our Adventure

June 1-5, 2014 blog post

“Coast to Coast on a Tandem”

Just finished rereading the blog post from the first six days of our 2014 unsupported tandem bicycle ride across the Northern Tier of the United States (4,362 miles, 72 days). This is the first of our three cross-country trips and the one our book, “Coast to Coast on a Tandem,” is based on.

I can’t believe how naive we were going into this. What made us think a middle-aged couple from Wisconsin could ride a fully-loaded tandem bicycle over the Cascade Mountains, let alone across the country?

Beautiful scenery, 5-hour climbs, meeting other cyclists, Tracy with the flu, great beer in unexpected places, cascading streams, family and 45 mph descents, it was an amazing first week. It’s fun to compare our memories with the blog posts and the book. We hope you enjoy the ride!
