I've had the opportunity to bicycle coast to coast across the US
. It took 9 weeks and was one of the most
wonderful experiences of my life. I've also bicycled the length of Great Britain
and in '04 cycled in the
and the northern part of Belgian
. Last year, 2013, I cycled from Paris
, a total of 4,000 km (2,500 Miles).
People wonder why I would want to put all the effort in cycling on a vacation instead of taking it easy. I think I
really enjoy the challenge waking up in the morning and saying to the other bicyclists, "gee what a wonderful day, let's go
for a ride". Getting to see the country up close at much slower pace and getting a chance to meet the locals is a big
bonus for me.
