DESCRIPTION: Hey there! Ever since I was at University, I've had a dream of biking across America and, after completing my first bike tour in the summer of 2016, I plan to make that dream a reality.
The tour I have planned is a highly scenic route with many, many highlights including but not limited to Glacier NP, Niagara Falls, Yellowstone NP, Badlands NP, Mount Rushmore, Devil's Tower, Olympic NP, and the Northern Cascades Highway.
Plan to average 60 miles a day with rest day a week, depending on the terrain. To keep costs relatively low, I plan on camping, stealth camping, and contacting Warm Showers hosts whenever possible. My family are concerned about me touring alone, so it'd be nice to find another person to tour with.
I'm very easygoing and the route is highly flexible at the moment, so just let me know if you're interested!
