I mentioned to a friend of mine how I can't wait to get back onto my bike once the snow clears up, being in upstate NY biking is all but impossible during the winter.
A few minutes ago though, I just got blasted in the face with a desire to ride the continental US to both lose weight and raise awareness for childhood obesity. And just for the awesome ****ing experience. I don't know if I want to do a year, or just take my time or what, but I really want to do this
I obviously can't start right off, being that I haven't planned at all for this yet, and that I'm not yet ready to ride potentially daunting amounts day in and day out, but that's part of the adventure... working hard for huge rewards.
What would I need to do to start? My bike info is in my sig.
I love tent camping, and have a good tent, so "housing" is not an issue, but getting food would be an issue, as well as doing laundry and stuff too, I guess.
I came here instead of any other forum, cause I figure the larger people who've done anything similar would have a better grasp on the issues surrounding this than the people who weigh 125 pounds and never worry about weight issues.
Forrest Gump style yo.
It is doable, I just don't know what would be involved.
