A Long Trip
When he was ready to leave, we decided we would ride to the edge of town with him.
And then Matt was off to finish his grand adventure. He kept a blog for the trip, which is a fascinating view of the country. He was biking solo, carrying a tent and sleeping bag, and everything he needed to support himself. That involved lots of planning and some very, very strong legs and mental fortitude.
As we were driving to the airport for our trip, we passed two big (20+ people) groups of bike riders heading in our direction. We are along the Western Express biking route that extends from Pueblo, CO to San Francisco, CA, so we see cyclists daily during the summer. One of the groups was also supporting Bike the US for MS, which made us think of Matt. He successfully finished his journey--congratulations!
