Total Miles: 4200
Rider: Lisa Campbell; 21 years old, Accountant, Non-Member.
How did ACA Help? Leaders and maps were provided by Bikecentennial.
Health Issues: I spent my rest day in Missoula sick with the stomach flu. The next day's hilly ride into Idaho was definitely a challenge!
Motivation: I wanted to challenge myself by crossing the country under my own steam and have a chance to really experience our country's diversity.
Most Challenging Aspect:Crossing the Appalachians was the most challenging aspect, partly because for us it was at the beginning of the trip.
Favorite Experience: The best part of the trip was getting to know my fellow group members, as well as the many wonderful people we met along the way.
Least Favorite: Thirty years later, I can't remember any bad experiences!
Tips: Just do it!
