54 Days out

How do you train for something like this anyways?

As we get closer to departure date, I will be introducing you to Wynn's teammates on this great adventure. They will be actively taking part in this blog as well. My husband is 58 years old. He has been on many adventures with me; Carribean cruises, Hawaii, Hiking Grand Canyon, Israel,ect...He is always excited to go and enjoys any adventure I put together for us. But this trip is his baby! And I hope it is indeed the trip of a lifetime for him. Wynn sent this to be posted today.

So, what are the three of us doing these days? Well, first of all, we are riding our bicycles frequently. Yesterday, we rode a 35 mile ride south from Berea/Metro Parks and returned on Station Road in Columbia. We will meet again to ride on Wednesday at our club ride, the Silver Wheels, a club centered out of Oberlin.

I was without my #1 bicycle for the past two weeks getting repairs done on it. I pretty much have a new bicycle now, including repairs that I had done in the spring of this year. Closer to the leaving date, I will throw on a couple of new tires, all of which I hope will take me the 2,600 miles. In the two week void, I was using bike #2 that my boss graciously gave to me several years ago (thank you).

The three of us will be meeting in a week or so, to go over more details of the trip – mapping of the route, practice packing of our van that we are taking (hopefully we will have enough room), compare lists of items that we are taking to be prepared as best as possible.

That is it for now. I have to save some more for later posting.

Wynn (known affectionately to my wife as "Schwynn")
