Peter- shoes and trailer test

This morning, David and I rode 25 miles in order to test my new shoes and the recently acquired Yakima trailer. David pulled the trailer and didn't seem to really even notice the weight, although it was empty. My shoes are perfect and just need a little breaking in. Took a few pics of the bikes and trailer over at Moses Creek for you all to see. Fun ride overall, but a little windy for my likes!!! Peace!

Peter - 4 weeks until departure


Well, our ride is fast approaching and I am definitely looking forward to the time to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Over the last few weeks David and I have slowly been collecting all the necessary tools, equipment, and gear we need for the 4 day ride. We haven't really done any training per say (besides the 100 miles a week we ride normally...), but I am confident we will have no problem in four weeks when we depart. Will post next week with update and further information... Peace!

David - Under 4 weeks to start

Hello everyone,

I have always wanted to do a blog, but never had the opportunity to do so. I have started this blog as extra credit for my class. Funny how it took extra credit to get something started.

My friend and I are going to start our trip to North Carolina in 29 days (March 15th). It seems that we are about 90% ready, and it feels that on departure day we will be all ready to go.

The trip will take 4 days of riding + 1 night in North Carolina. Our nights will be spent in campgrounds and hostels. If all goes 'as planed' we should be back home by March 20th.

I plan to do mobile/daily updates during the trips and maybe weekly ones before the starting date.

I need people from 6 different countries to post to my blog!!! please do so, and I will get extra credit for my class.
