My Bucket List includes (among other things) a ride of over 20 miles in all 48 of the contiguous United States. Here’s my progress so far.
Wanna ride with me? E-mail me and we’ll see about setting it up!
Running List Based On States
Illinois – Completed my first Century Ride in the Tri-State Tour August, 2013. The ride launched from Hammond, IN and landed Kenosha, WI, via the lake shore path and scenic Lake County, IL. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect and it was a GREAT ride!
Indiana – Ridden a few hundred miles in my home state. Rode my inaugural Hilly Hundred in 2012 (read my post, A Ride that Changed Everything) with my good friend and brother Michael Navarro. Gonna do it again in 2013, with more enjoyment and better riding!
Kentucky – Due to a family emergency I wasn’t able to ride the Tour de Cure, Louisville (’13) as planned. Kentucky will have to be… TBD.
Ohio – Introduced to the incredible spirit of Livestrong riding in August, 2012 as we rode from Van Wert, OH to the Lutheran Hospital, Fort Wayne, IN. Pretty easy ride, but great day to spend with great people. God bless you Jon Colbert!
Oklahoma – Rode with my brother-in-law, Jeremy Hall, in October, 2012 (read Dreaming Again) . Fantastic ride, VERY enjoyable. We’re hoping to meet up for more riding in the future.
Wisconsin – As part of the Tri-State Tour (August, 2013) I rode the requisite 20 miles in and around Kenosha, WI. They have a great shoreline along Lake Michigan with all the requisite marinas, activities and restaurants. I really want to try Captain Mike’s Beer and Burgers sometime. “Technically” this meets my requirements, but I am looking for another significant ride in WI, perhaps something a bit more central or up near Green Bay?
