|Transcendental Transcontinental - Xcountry USA
tour started August 2004, submitted 3 March 2008
Website includes travelogue, gear, planning, 50 (USA) State Bicycle Coordinator summary page, beer sampling, etc.
I also took the opportunity to sample beers from across the USA. When you are riding your bike across the country, beer is guilt free. It's called fuel, and it tastes good, too! At the end of the day, nothing replaces those vital body fluids better than beer - water works OK, too, I guess.
You'll find that some state bicycle coordinators are better than others. Wyoming and South Dakota coordinators were topnotch! Clearly, they were real bike riders not some pinky office donut eaters.
