Welcome to our Blog!  We hope you enjoy reading about our 2021 Portland to Portland ride across America!

(This picture was taken on our descent into Silverton, Colorado on the Ride the Rockies tour, a few years ago ...)

Our route starts on the same Lewis and Clark route Mark's Dad used for his 1996 crossing, then diverts to see several of the western national parks.  We will be staying on a northern route as we cross America.  We will be riding our tandem, self-supported with a mix of camping and other accommodations.

Like many, we will have some personal challenges to overcome.  Without the support of our family and friends, we wouldn't even consider trying this!  Thank You!  We plan on providing regular updates via this blog once we start, which will be the first weekend in June 2021.

Please check out the links on the right hand panel.  There are a lot details about the trip.
