Summary: OUR GROUP MET IN REEDSPORT OR, AND AFTER SOME GROWING PAINS WE JELLED AND BECAME A "FAMILY" AND DID IT.; Commercial Trip

How did ACA Help? THIS WAS A BIKECENTENIAL TOUR AND YOU GUYS PROVIDED US WITH MAPS AND TOUR BOOKS, THAT WE GOT AT THE DIFFERENT SECTIONS OF THE ROUTE

Health Issues: I HAD AN ACCIDENT IN YELLOWSTONE WHICH MESSED UP MY ELBOW AND CAUSED ME TO RIDE AN AMBULANCE INTO THE TETONS. I WAS ABLE TO CONTINUE ON THE NEXT DAY.

Motivation: IT WAS THERE!!!!!!!!!!!

Most Challenging Aspect:INTERACTING WITH 14 PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY

Favorite Experience: ONE DAY WE CAME UPON A GROUP OF BIKECENTENIAL RIDERS THAT WERE DOING THE SAG WAGON TRIP. WE WITH OUR FULL LOADED BIKES JUST BLEW BYE THEM LIKE THEY WERE STANDING STILL, AND WE DIDDN'T EVEN HAVE TO PUT OUT AN EFFORT.

Least Favorite: ONE DAY IN KANSAS I HIT THE WALL IT WAS FLAT AS COULD BE AND I HAD TO PEDDLE IN MY MOUNTAIN GEAR TO GO ANYWHERE I HAD APSOLUTLY NO ENERGY. NEXT DAY I WAS FINE!

Tips: IF YOU THINK YOU WANT TO DO IT, THEN DO IT.
