TransAmerica 2010


I did my first cross country bicycle journey in the summer and autumn of 2010. This was a life changing experience. First of all, I did very little training before leaving so from an athletic perspective it was grueling for the first few weeks. At 55 I didn’t realize the demands that would be placed on my body. I thought that years of running would enable me to transition to cycling with relative ease. Nothing could be further from the truth. Cycling is a totally different type of exercise.
