TransAmerica bike tour
A former lab mate and her husband are going across the country on bicycles. They started yesterday at Yorktown, Virginia and will eventually finish at Astoria, Oregon. You can follow their adventure here: http://loveandbikes.tumblr.com/ Below is a youtube clip taken at the end of the first day's ride. They did 65 miles, so just over a "metric century". Not bad for the first day! The couple in the lead picture of the video (with what I hope are cups of beer) are friends who are accompanying Jo and Ben for the first few days. Ben is the one in the stylish old school cycling cap. Jo is the camera woman. Enjoy!
