TransAm tour on Trek FX+

My husband & I just got back from cycling the first half of the TransAm: Oregon coast to Pueblo, Colorado. Pueblo to the east coast next year. Don's 60 with COPD, lung lymphoma, 2 new knees, and a new hip (the COPD is the issue as far as riding). He rode a 2011 Trek FX+ electric assist bike, me a 20 year old Raleigh mountain bike. We rode 40-50 miles a day, all motels, no camping gear.

Our blog is at: http://bicyclelife.topicwise.com/doc/yumadons1

So if a cross country trip is on your bucket list, the Trek FX+ can make it happen!

Thanks for posting the update on the second half. I ride an FX+, and followed the first half of your tour. I'm looking forward to living vicariously through your blog while I dream about my own transcontinetal tour.

Safe travels!

Thanks guys. Love spreading the word that the FX+ makes touring an option for those whose health isn't the greatest.
