Brett’s Big Biking Adventure
(Just another trip across the country by bike!)

This is the chronicle of my cross-country bicycling adventure during the summer months of the Y.O.O.L. 2010. To relive highlights from the journey, go to the right and press on the CATEGORY list to see the drop down menu, or select instead from the tabs at the very top of this page, above the goofy pic of me “phoning it in” during the pre-trip days.

“A bicycle does get you there and more… . And there is always the thin edge of danger to keep you alert and comfortably apprehensive.  Dogs become dogs again and snap at your raincoat; potholes become personal.  And getting there is all the fun.”

~Bill Emerson, Saturday Evening Post, 29 July 1967

“Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look?
It’s based on a novel by a man named Lear
And I need a job, so I want to be a paperback writer,
Paperback writer.

~Lennon & McCartney, 13–14 April 1966

In the words of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle “In the morning or the afternoon, before or after work as the mood o’ertakes me, I mount the wheel and am off for a spin of a few miles up or down the road from my country place. I can only speak words of praise for the bicycle; for I believe that its use is commonly beneficial and not at all detrimental to health, except in the matter of beginners who overdo it.”
