HelenHeart cycles to Louisana

Hi.
I've had a change of heart/plan, and am now leaving for Louisana on Saturday.

http://aspentimes.com/article/20050912/NEWS/109120010

If anyone would like to say hello along my route, or ride with me for an hour/day or month! please PM me and I will give you my route thru your state.

Thanks

Good luck to you! If you were riding through VA, I would say let's ride! If something changes and you decide to detour through DC, drop me a PM.

Good luck. Just some advice after reading the newspaper article:

1. If you are following US 50, don't drink the water east of Pueblo. Trust me. Bottled water is the only way to go out there.

2. Don't go off any paved surfaces unless you have to. Goatheads would be a cash crop if someone could figure out what to do with them other than puncture bicycle tires.

3. Eat as much pie as you can find

Charity Ride to Baton Rogue

I'm trying to find people to ride with as I go thru CO, KS, OK, AK and LA. Anybody want to ride a while? Couple of hours, a day, anything.
I can let you know the route thru your state if you PM me.
Thanks
