Renee Rocheleau and Maya Honeyman of Chico, California, rode from Arcata, California to Bar Harbor, Maine in 2009.

When they were in Missoula Renee explained, “We’re sisters who have talked about riding across the U.S. together since we were little girls. We’re finally doin’ it! This is our first major bike tour and we didn’t train. We definitely felt the burn going over the mountains. This has been an amazing journey of self-discovery and adventure! We hope to discover the beauty of America through stories of the people that we meet along the way.”
