Not reasonable, I know! But when Heidi asked me to accompany her on a road ride to San Francisco, I couldn’t resist.
Packed my 14lb little bike with 20lbs of essentials and off I go!
Preparation? A few minutes on Garmin to estimate total distance and have a general idea of direction, clean the bike, look at the weather to guess the correct clothing. Some Cliff bars, jelly beans, light wait camping gear and book a cheap flight back.
We left this morning and I got told at least 10 times that we were crazy, but they’re wrong. I ride to keep the crazy away!
A late start, but we managed to cross the border and do 130km,setting up camp next to Chuckanut drive.
