Cathy’s Big Rde across America – Washington to Washington

The Big Ride Across America was a huge success for all. I loved every day of the tour – and never once wanted to quit! Thanks for all the support from the people who cared for us during the tour. It was fun to train and get ready for the trip, including the equipment and supplies. Each of the 49 days was filled with joy and excitement as we toured the landscapes. Being away from home was a bit hard especially for those of us with children, dogs and missing partners. Each day’s bicycle ride full of new experiences.

The flight to Seattle with our bicycles in boxes was smooth as could be. We arrived with bicycles intact and proceeded to dip our back tires in the Pacific ocean. We started our journey, traveled across the Rocky Mountains and into the amazing American Serengeti areas before reaching the urban North East. Our tour guides from VeloSante presented high quality road maps, intelligent food and a wide range of support every day – without ever a moment of negative energy.

Here we are in Washington D.C. after successfully ending our cross country bicycle ride.

The people on The Big Ride Across America were all amazing with talent and personality. If I could do it over again, I would spend more time getting to know every person better. The energy was positive and supportive every day. We tented in amazing campgrounds and rested in several colleges and universities across the states.  The work of traveling was spread so that everyone could participate as a giver and a taker at meal times.  Each morning we gathered to plan the day’s ride and load our bags into the truck.

If you ever think…riding across America would be fun to do – it was very fun. With a Pedego electric bicycle, anyone with a good attitude can ride this ride. The physical aspects were very rigorous but not more than any healthy person could endure. I am an old lady of 57 and if I can do it, you can too!
