WELCOME TO MY CROSS COUNTRY SOUTHERN TIER BIKE TOUR ADVENTURE 2022

BRIEF OVERVIEW ABOUT THIS TRIP

Welcome to my blog!

I've always wanted to cycle across America. 2 years ago, I decided to look at all my options. I decided, hands down, WomanTours bike tour company was the right fit for me. 

I was placed on a waitlist for 2023. Great! That gave me plenty of time to train. In late December, 2021, I was notified that a slot became available for March 2022. I accepted, although I felt I was behind the "eight ball” 🎱 for training. I was anxious and intimidated. I am not an Olympic athlete but I have some cycling experience. 

On March 10, 2022, I will dip my wheels in the Pacific Ocean (San Diego) and start my adventure across the southern tier. On May 5, the plan is to arrive in St. Augustine, Florida. 56 days, 8 states, 3,100 miles with spectacular scenery.

An experience of a lifetime!
