Over the last 8 or so years we have been expanding our bike riding to new and more challenging events. We started with Team in Training in 2003 that took us from fifteen-mile riders to metric century riders to hundred mile riders. With each passing year we scheduled more training and more challenging rides. What looked crazy one year looked like an exciting challenge the next. We graduated from flat afternoon rides to moderate climbing centuries, to multi-day rides and then to monster climbing rides.
So last year we started to think about our next adventure. We had heard of people riding across country and were intrigued by the prospect. So what started as a casual conversation has developed into reality. We are setting out on an adventure of a lifetime, cycling unsupported from coast to coast across the United States.
