"I must be crazy."

What makes a middle age guy like me who commutes by bike only 18-20 miles per day think that he can ride across the country? To be truthful, I’m more than a weekend rider and over the past two years, I’ve logged more than 4000 miles per year. Also, as a member of the Central Indiana Bicycling Association (CIBA), I’ve done my share of hard weekly training rides and long weekend club rides around Indianapolis. What I haven’t done is ride at least 100 miles per day for even two consecutive days much less 36! And unlike the TREK bike route across the country, central Indiana is flat!

To think that I can cover 3280 miles and 170,000 feet of climbing in 36 days of riding…I must be crazy!
