The only thing about riding a bike from Portland to Phoenix is that in-between there is something called... NEVADA.

Perks of Traveling by Bike: A few select favourites

1. Immediacy of environment - hearing birdsong while sailing through on a silent bike, spotting herons and the occasional peacock.
2. Easy conversation starter - people want to know what you're up to and aren't afraid to ask. Don't know how to chat up the cashier/server/truck stop patron? It's easy: "I rode my bike here!"
3. Can camp anywhere - pulling over is easy, a bike goes everywhere you do
4. Edible fuel - YOU are the engine


  1. These are all really great perks. Makes me want to travel by bike more! ;)

  2. No license or insurance required. Don't have to clean the windshield. Don't have to wear a seatbelt. You can spit tobacco without rolling down the window.
