Hello World. I am a human being with 660 muscle and 220 bones that up to my 45 year of life are all working in unison and allows me to pedal a bicycle from one point to another. I used to be concerned with how fast , how far and how long was it going to take me but now I worry about what I am going to see, who I am going to meet, where I am going to sleep, and eat I think that is a pretty good situation considering everything that comes in propelling a bicycle throughout a distance. I welcome all to read and see what this cycle touring world is all about. Your meal , showers and places of sleep will be the best you have ever experience because your sense are over stimulate it. The food you consider beyond your desire comes as a gift and blessing when you are starving. The hello from another human being is a melody to your ears and their desire to converse is nourishment to your spirit. We are social beings and we need to have that interaction. It is what in cycle touring keeps us pedal forward. I want to come back to my none cycling world and tell them all that I have discover a new world. Like Christopher Columbus the world was not flat , it is round and not symmetrical and is waiting for your visit. Get out and see it.
