Total Miles: 3
Rider: Whitney Finnstrom; Urban Planner, Non-Member UNITED STATES Email
Summary: I rode with a group of about 100 people from Las Vegas, Nevada to Washington, D.C. We began the trip on Juky 4, 1976 and ended up in D.C. around mid-August. The group originated out of Anaheim, California. I will never forget the experience, particularly because I wasn't quite 16 amd I was on my first adventure across the country. I have lost touch with people from the trip, but well remember the great people and sense of spirit about the trip. Meeting folks across the country was fantastic.; Commercial Trip
Motivation: I wanted to see the rest of the cuntry and test myself attempting to cross the country by bike.
Most Challenging Aspect:I had never biked such a long distance at that age.
Favorite Experience: Meeting people along the way. People gave us food, fed us watermelons along the way, and I learned to love traveling (and biking).
Tips: Find good travel partners who aren't easily fazed.
