As I wrote in the previous post about the Illini 4000, which I first encountered riding in southern Oregon, I recently completed my own bicycle tour of the Pacific Coast. I put the journal on a separate extended blog page since its so long.
It was quite a life experience and I'm glad I made use of some time off to accomplish this. It was my first major bike tour, previously I'd only done an overnight trip and mostly just half-day rides out of my apartment. I stayed mostly in hotels but I highlighted a few notable hostels and campsites.

This blog weighs in on topics such as long-distance skating, the Illinois canals, cycling, and a variety of related (and occasionally not-so-related) topics. I'd like to correspond with others interested in skating the Hennepin and I&M canals.
