A day-to-day chronicle


Tempe on mapTEMPE, Ariz. — For anyone who might be interested, I have a page on this blog that chronicles the day-to-day progress of this bicycle journey from San Diego to St. Augustine, Fla.
We started on Sept. 20 at Ocean Beach in San Diego and are to finish Nov. 21, the Saturday before Thanksgiving, in St. Augustine. We currently are in Tempe for a rest day on Monday, about 441 miles into a journey of an estimated 3,160 miles.
The page that chronicles the journey is a sub-page of the “Route” page. Each day’s entry consists of the number of days on the road, the date, the locations of the start and end of each day’s ride, the mileage for the day and the cumulative mileage for the trip.
This Monday, our first rest day after eight days of riding, has been devoted to sleeping late, cleaning and lubing the bike, topping up the air in the tires, doing laundry, a bit of reading, checking e-mail and catching up on the blog.

    Thanks for the detailed blog, Jim. I especially love the Americana series detailing the towns and locations along your route. Perhaps it’s the journalist in you that drove you to do so much research. Whatever the motivation, I think it greatly enhances the experience for you and hopefully everyone riding with you. Perhaps you can even act as tour guide on some of the stops!

    I agree with ToddBS. Andre has been following it and suggested that you write a sort of guide book detailing the towns, history, culture, etc along the route. Ben
