Spring of 2021, in between semesters of college, I will be cycling across America!
My route: Charleston, SC, to Los Angeles, CA
Length: ~3000 miles
Time frame: Ideally, it will take 2 months
It’s not prudent to share the exact coordinators of my route, so here is a general overall of the states I will be passing through:
Originally, I had wanted to cycle across America in the spring of 2020, before my first semester of college, but Covid-19 obliterated that plan.
February 2020: route mapped, new second-hand Big Agnes Tent and Osprey 58L backpack purchased.
Instead of going the traditional racks and panniers route, I’m going to strap my backpack to my rear rack. And if that doesn’t work, I’ll try attaching a milk crate to my rear rack for my backpack to sit in.
July 2020: approximately 60% of my gear acquired. Still missing:
• bike lock
• bike gloves
• bike headlight/tail light
• bike rack
• bike pump
• water bottle holder
• tire repair kit
(In other words, all the gear exclusively related to cycling I am still needing to acquire. 😂 )
This post will be updated periodically. Next update will likely be a picture + specs of my bike.
I never intend to write blog posts about my journey, but, if I survive it, I’ll surely throw up an art gallery showcasing each step of the way. 🤪
