What was the most memorable part of my 2,500 mile Atlantic Coast Cycling tour? That’s easy! Its the people I shared the journey with. It was a privilege to be a part of such a great group of women! You’ll learn more about many of them in future posts.
No journey of 2,500 miles could be completed without encountering some challenges. You might think 2,500 miles was challenge enough, but it is inevitable that there will be more. You can read about some of the challenges we faced below. Stay tuned for a post about my favorite aspect of the tour – the people!
This is the second in a series of posts about my reflections on my 2,500 mile Atlantic Coast cycling tour. This post is about a phenomenon the Woman Tour riders call the “Biking Bubble.” At some point in a long cycling journey, you simply become immersed in the trip itself and the outside world fades away. THIS is the “Biking Bubble.”
Learn what I liked about the Biking Bubble. Next up – the challenges of a long cycling tour.
Many people have asked about my most memorable moments from my Atlantic coast cycling tour. It is surprising how easily the days run together and how hard it is, in retrospect, to distinguish one day from another. But now that the journey is finished, I can reflect on the major patterns that I experienced and what makes the journey so memorable.
Within a week, I will finish my 2,500 Atlantic Coast Cycling tour and Cycling for Good. Over the next week, in lieu of my “regular” schedule, I’ll remind you of the people who inspired my ride – both before and during my adventure. So hang in there – lots of posts to come, and without predictable internet, they may come in spurts!
Welcome to week six of my 2,500 mile bike ride I’m calling Cycling for Good. This week I’m riding in honor of Andrew Powell and his fight to recover from devastating injuries and to return to running and triathlon. Learn about AP and the Challenged Athlete Foundation. And you’ll have a chance to make a difference, too.
