Welcome to my “news from the road” journal as I ride my ICE recumbent trike from Chanute, Kansas to West Yellowstone, Montana. This is the second “leg” of my dream of cycling across the USA from coast to coast. My son, Jeff, and I rode bicycles from Chanute to the east coast in 1999. Next summer I hope to complete the journey by riding from West Yellowstone, Montana to Astoria, Oregon on the west coast. Departing from Chanute, Kansas on Monday, June 2, I plan to average about 60 miles a day through Kansas, Colorado and Wyoming for a total of 1,318 miles. See the map below of the TransAmerica Trail as established by the Adventure Cycling Association. I hope you’ll visit this site often and keep me company along the way!
