One year. One bike. One trip around the continental United States

About a month or so ago, I ran across Robert’s website: Bike 360 I saw that he would be passing through Wilmington on his bike trip around the country. He’s literally cycling around the country—left Houston, rode the Southern states, up the East coast (with a break to go to Bonaroo), along the Northern border and then down the West coast. I’m tired just thinking about it. Anyway, I dropped him a message and offered my house while he was here. He took me up on it, arrived last Friday, hung out for the night and was back on the road the next morning. He’s a really great guy and I’m looking forward to keeping up with ride. Please check out his site Bike 360 it’s well written and entertaining plus he’s got some good photos.

Negotiating the hall.

The load.

Heading out Saturday morning.

I think I saw you guys the other day. I was riding along the Military Cutoff bike path and saw a couple of guys on bikes, one had some huge panniers and they looked like the ones in the pictures.

That's really cool that he is going around the country. I know of lots of people who just go across the country, but going around is a neat idea! It really emphasizes the idea of freedom on a bike.

Yeah, that was probably us. I rode with him out to Hwy 17. It was a little easier than me trying to explain to him how to get there. Plus we grabbed some breakfast at Sweet n Savory.

That's cool he stayed with you. Good karma for when you're out-n-about later on.
