Together with your help we can change this.

Let's Do This

We will begin pedaling in San Diego, CA and our destination is Bar Harbor, ME – a distance of approximately 5,300 miles.

    Hi Betsy and Kent!

    I’ll try this response route. Our e-mail down here is (above). The other one won’t send. Anyway, what a neat website! I hope to follow you guys this time and will contribute. Longer message will follow, but let’s try a short one first. My only comment is that I have trouble backing out of things when I enlarge, etc. Probably my lack of expertise w/computers. Let me know if you receive this. Take good care of yourselves and thanks for the news re Steve and others. Chuck

    We want to follow you. There are several reasons. John is from Minnesota. He likes Minnesota people. Also we cycled from Seaside, CA to Bar Harbor, Maine. We did it, but not all at once. We also value WATERAID. We will be with you in spirit.

    I posted my comment on Track My Tour. It will be interesting to see all the permutations of your website. We look forward to your pictures and comments as you journey. Wonder what marvelous moments are in store for you. There were some miraculous ones on the UGRR. Travel Mercies.
