Finished a TransAm

My wife and I completed a supported cross country trip from east to west. We usually ride road bikes but for this trip we had a couple of CoMotions built for us and we are really glad we did. No matter the road condition, the steel frame and relaxed geometry worked well.


We tried to keep of a blog during the trip. Here's the link.

It's good to be back home but we've already been thinking about another trip.

Congrats to you! We are looking at doing the Underground Railroad route next. Probably next spring. So many places to ride and not enough time to do it!
