Which way did it go…?


Wheel full 70px Well, that’s not a Trek bike in that box in any event.


Wheel full 70px So, oh momma, can this really be the end?

Wheel full 70px Is it really all over?  Am I headed back to Alaska?  After all that prep, am I done after only riding 60 miles/105 km?

Wheel full 70px Or am I headed for the next level?  Just keep in mind what Treebeard said (in the movie at least):

I always like going South; somehow it feels like going downhill.

Wheel full 70px So, wherever you go, there you are.  And we’ll see where we are in just a few days.

A Flying Bike?

Wheel full 70pxNo, not quite.  But it reads like one of those “Brain Puzzler” problems:

You live in Alaska, your bicycle is in Portland Oregon, and you need it in Jacksonville, Florida by the start of next month so that it can be ready for a ride across the United States.  What do you do?

Wheel full 70pxWell, as far as I’m concerned you get on the web and go to BikeFlights [linkie].

Wheel full 70pxIn about 30 minutes and for a very reasonable amount you’ll have it handled.  Of course, that length of time and the “reasonable amount” part doesn’t include coordination with two bike shops and the cost of disassembly and boxing at one end and reassembly at the other, but hey.  It is great to know that this part of prep is completely handled, and all I need to do is turn up at the Zencog store in Jacksonville [linkie]
