Biking from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine the journey begins July 1st, 2010. Our itinerary, while likely to evolve along the way, will be heavily influenced by the recommendations from people like you. From Portland, OR we will head east, exploring small towns and national landmarks, overlooked trails and major cities. Check out the Oh the Places We’ll Go page to see our intended route and add your own suggestions.
Our goal is not to race through the countryside or to beat any cycling records. Instead, we seek to appreciate the uniqueness of every country road, busy city and smiling face we encounter. Creating a visual representation of our journey is important as well. We want to get people excited about the concept of travel that is accomplished through dedication and willpower, without adding to our carbon footprint. Peruse our Blog for written and visual updates on our journey.
Self sufficiency is an important theme of our journey. We will be traveling light, fueled by healthy food and the natural high that accompanies a blend of athleticism and exploration. We will be camping much of the time, and be guests to those who open their homes to us. We plan to incorporate hiking, fishing, urban picnicking, and socializing into our array of activities. To learn more about us, visit the Who We Are page.
Our Intent is to redefine how we travel. We believe it is our right to choose how we travel, interact with our country and the people in it. We refuse to have our itineraries dictated by foreign oil companies. It is our right as Americans to travel across our own country and know that other Americans will be neighborly. We will not give up these rights, and so we choose to ride!
This journey is made possible from people like you who choose to help this become a reality. We have already had people donate their time, energy, advice, electronics, and funds to make this trip a reality. Feel free to peruse our list of Sponsors or Donate to our cause.
