Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

The Big Ride Across America was a huge success for all. I loved every day of the tour – and never once wanted to quit! Thanks for all the support from the people who cared for us during the tour. It was fun to train and get ready for the trip, including the equipment and supplies. Each of the 49 days was filled with joy and excitement as we toured the landscapes. Being away from home was a bit hard especially for those of us with children, dogs and missing partners. Each day’s bicycle ride full of new experiences.
The flight to Seattle with our bicycles in boxes was smooth as could be. We arrived with bicycles intact and proceeded to dip our back tires in the Pacific ocean. We started our journey, traveled across the Rocky Mountains and into the amazing American Serengeti areas before reaching the urban North East. Our tour guides from VeloSante presented high quality road maps, intelligent food and a wide range of support every day – without ever a moment of negative energy.
Here we are in Washington D.C. after successfully ending our cross country bicycle ride.
The people on The Big Ride Across America were all amazing with talent and personality. If I could do it over again, I would spend more time getting to know every person better. The energy was positive and supportive every day. We tented in amazing campgrounds and rested in several colleges and universities across the states. The work of traveling was spread so that everyone could participate as a giver and a taker at meal times. Each morning we gathered to plan the day’s ride and load our bags into the truck.
If you ever think…riding across America would be fun to do – it was very fun. With a Pedego electric bicycle, anyone with a good attitude can ride this ride. The physical aspects were very rigorous but not more than any healthy person could endure. I am an old lady of 57 and if I can do it, you can too!
This part of our coast-to-coast bicycle tour was getting bittersweet — happy to be reaching our destination but a bit sad to see it end. Most of us were in great spirits as we got into Maryland ready for our final night in the tents at a campground. We worked our way through narrow country roads that were in pretty good shape. The traffic was bearable even on Maryland Route 27 South. The road had a shoulder that was wide enough to keep us out of the traffic. The weather was cloudy and threatening all day but never got wet. We were thrilled to get through yet another rain-free day on the road to D.C. Our dinner was catered at the campground that evening and we all enjoyed steak, chicken and a welcome bit of booze. The Big Riders gathered for our final dinner together as a group and declared ourselves a “family” — the 2014 Big Riders. We will go down in history as having the best possible weather in the history of the ride.

Another rain-free, cool summer day – perfect cycling weather. We stopped several times to rest along the way on this century bicycle ride. There were several well needed breaks along the way including a wonderful home cooked meal. Tony, an alumni of The Big Ride Across America packed up his garden’s bounty and prepared a gourmet meal including grilled burgers and chicken. He carried in his own barbecue grill and delivered fresh salads, flowers and an abundance of deliciousness from his garden. We met his son Ryan who will be attending Penn State in the Fall. Thanks Tony!
This ride was very hilly and mountainous, and it was a hard day for everyone — even me. I could not have done the riding on this day without the Pedego electric assist. The hills were long and hard and my old legs needed the support. The first e-bike battery lasted about 29 miles — the fastest discharge of the entire trip. The second battery lasted about 30 miles. I was getting a little nervous when I was on my third battery thinking I might run out. The land started to flatten out as we made progress and the third battery got me to the 80-mile mark.
The day we started to ride through my home state of Pennsylvania it was cloudy and cool but no rain. We started out in a moist fog which was cold for cycling – about 45 degrees. It warmed up to the 70’s but the day never really got warm. It was a wet and cold summer day. The Polar Vortex is still with us.
On this day of cycling across America, day 42, we woke up to rain. The tents were soaking wet when we packed them away. The day started out wet as we left the Terrace Lakes campground and headed out to our next destination which is very close to home for us. Riding into Pennsylvania was exciting as we get closer and closer to our final destination – Washington, D.C.
Lots of rolling hills as we get close to Pennsylvania. We saw several Amish buggies traveling the countryside as we rolled through Ohio back roads near the border of Pennsylvania. Home is just 45 minutes from this point. The air was crisp, the sky was clear and the day went smooth as silk as we pedaled our way through some narrow country roads and brief urban traffic. We had dinner in the campground and were lucky enough to enjoy the company of avid cyclist friends Terry and Kevin from Pittsburgh, Pa. They drove in from the city to check out the riders and see what it is like to ride a bicycle across the country with an organized group.
