Welcome to our website! We are two intrepid travelers: Joe Harrison, age 73, of Apple River, Illinois and Susan Fenn, age 55, of Anchorage, Alaska. We plan on riding from San Diego, CA on the Pacific Ocean
to St. Augustine, FL on the Atlantic Ocean, a distance of 3,160 miles, through extremes of both terrain and temperature. The highest point is 8,228 feet with numerous hills and valleys and a desert or two in between. The temperatures may range from 30 to over 100 degrees, with a bit of humidity adding to the overall mix. We plan to average 60 miles a day. We are a self-supported trip and we will carry everything (tent, stove, sleeping bags etc) we need for the next two months—services are few and far between in the Southwest. Our path will generally follow the Adventure Cycling Association Southern Tier Route. We have done 2 month-long bicycle rides in the past, however both the temperatures and the terrain were more forgiving.
The purpose of the ride is to raise money for cancer research. Joe’s late wife and Susan’s mother both died from breast cancer. Please follow the daily updates on this newest adventure. Your generous support would be appreciated.
