We have arrived at Amelia Island Florida!

After 37 cycling days we have traveled 2888 miles, climbed over 80,500+ feet, had 32 flats (including a flat 3 miles from the finish – thanks Dan!), touched our front tires in the Atlantic Ocean and went for a swim to boot!  Living the dream! We have truly had fun cycling across the country…….what a great experience!  It has been a privilege to cycle with all who enjoyed the entire route – Arlene, Kim, Debbie, Anthony, John – and everyone who rode some of the route – Coach Dave, Mickey, Jean-Pierre, Stephen, Paul, Kris, Dan, David, Kate and especially Robin – Great job everyone!  Thanks for living the dream with us!

    Congratulations, you really biked long and hard and not always in the ideal conditions. It was your spirit that shone through on the many blogs we read.

    Congratulations to you all, especially my tennis friend, Debbie, on your completion of
    the trans-continental jaunt. Quite a feat, definitely physically, but probably also emotionally. And with no major injury. Meeting fascinating citizens along the road, while witnessing the amazing diversity of scenery as well. Sounds as though your group had great comraderie, and tremendous logistical organization. Tony, Weston, MA.
