Several, especially the early days, appear to be quite difficult.
These days have long, twisty climbs into and out of the mountains. Several of these add dirt and gravel to make for long days, especially considering that some are well over 400 miles.
I was getting a little concerned until recently.
When I got onto Rocket to ride to St. Petersburg to meet Ken and Gary for a five day ride around Florida last week, within the first hundred miles I again realized that enjoy riding these scooters more than anything in my life.
It is where I belong.
So, instead of worrying about the long days, I am embracing them. Dirt,,,who cares. I have ridden worse roads than these.
And these roads are through some of the most dramatic scenery anywhere.
Sequoia National Forest
Death Valley National Park
Lake Mead National Recreation Area
Zion National Park
Bryce Canyon National Park
Glen Canyon Recreation Area
These are some of the places I have been wanting to ride for years.
I am in for a month long, 5500 mile ride when getting to the start from Seattle and riding home from Virginia Beach are factored in.
What could possibly be more fun than that?
The adventure begins in mid May where I left Vanessa after 2016. Seattle.
