Yesterday (May 2) Woman Tour's Southern Tier cross country bike tour ended in St. Augustine, Florida, at the beautiful Atlantic beaches of Anastasia Park.
Ok, what were the top 5 worst and best things about the tour?
I find it hard to believe that this tour is almost over. I have 7 cycling days left. That is, if my bike behaves.
The tour had a day off in St. Francisville, Louisiana, a small, charming village on a ridge overlooking the Mississippi River. There, I found a Schenectady connection.
Texas does a pretty good job of picking up litter along roadways, and the wildflowers add a colorful touch.
From a sublime experience cycling in the Davis Mountains to hell on wheels -- chipseal.
Schenectady's Pat Rush is now cycling through Texas with the group, and reports that they may take 20 days just to cross the wide expanse of the Lone Star State.
You learn some pretty odd things on a trip across America. I learned about wind.
Moving 30 cyclists across America, their luggage for 2 months, their bicycles, requires staff, vehicles, and planning. Especially since dinners and many breakfasts are cooked out of a chuck wagon.
The desert seems to attract the oddballs, the characters, the misfits, the marginal.
