|3200 miles in 33 Days: Solo, self-supported ride across the US by female
tour started July 2009, submitted 21 June 2010
I finished up my MBA at Wharton and decided to bike across the country before starting a life of 80 hour work weeks. I rode from Seattle to Washington, DC, alone, self-supported, creating my own route while I went, covering about 100 miles a day (3200 miles in 33 days). My blog details the logistics like where I stayed, how far I rode, and what roads I took. It also covers some of the more entertaining bits: the amazing people I met, getting lost a LOT in the west, being chased by dogs, coinciding the the Sturgis Bike Rally, my mild obsession with Wall Drug, and other daily trials.
As a single woman, this whole thing made my mother very nervous, but it was a fun adventure.
