I was spending the first night on the road of my 3,600 mile/5,800 kilometer solo bike ride down the Atlantic coast from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Key West, Florida.
That ride took 84 days. Gary Schmidt and I will ride this year about two-thirds of that distance in just over half the number of days. Of course, I spent the first full six weeks of the 2016 trip in full tourist mode, averaging only about 30 miles/50 kilometers a day.
You can read my partially completed journal of that ride (through the ferry across the Bay of Fundy at this point) at crazyguyonabike.com here [link]. I plan to write the journal of this year’s ride as I go along, so I promise I won’t get so far behind.
