    Solo tour

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I'm really doing it - riding from Seattle to Lincoln, that is. I'm sitting in a library of a town I'd never heard of until last night typing this.

    I'm trying to keep up a journal, if you want to follow, it's at:

    It's hot, I'm not in the shape I should be in for this, but durn it all, I'm doing it. So far, it's fun.

    Just read your entire journal so far and love it! Will be following along with you. Love that you are brave enough to do it solo, and love that you are riding a recumbent (is there a motor on that?! )

    Very cool -- congrats on doing this!

    Sounding Great, keep it up. I know that hill outside of Prosser, ugh. You are in for some rolling, rolling hills in the next few days with plenty of wheat.

    pedal pedal pedal!

    Very fun to read about your trip. And whoosh, time flies ... feels like yesterday was May when I learned of your plan and suddenly, you're well underway!! It's great you're riding it, having fun, and taking the time to post. I look forward to catching up with the rest of your posts this evening. Just now I'm off to work.
