  1. Giving away my 46cm 2011 Surly Long Haul Trucker to a FIRST TIME female cross-country rider!

    Once upon a time i bought a bicycle and rode from Chinook, WA to Rehoboth Beach, DE. Since then this bicycle has ridden through all 50 United States and clocked over 7,000 miles! Eight years, later i want to give someone else this amazing opportunity.
    In my dream of dreams this bicycle will travel the world, trek over 100,000 miles and have at least a dozen different riders. Truly a gift that keeps giving/going.

    i am looking for that star crossed cyclist that is ready to take on a new adventure and needs great gear to do it!

    • Rachel,
      That’s amazing of you! That bike has to have such a special place in your heart. If you still have it, let me know. I’d love to share in our Facebook group and see if we can help you find the right “star crossed cyclist.”

  2. Hi Rachel,

    I clicked onto this page looking for inspiration to do my first cross country ride as I am in a transitional time in my life. I’d love to connect with you to hear about your travels, triumphs, and challenges. I would also appreciate any advice you could pass on to me about best routes in North America, bicycle selection, maintenance, and safety. My big bicycle dreams include biking from San Diego to New York, Umea to Uppsala – Sweden, and from Seoul to Busan – South Korea, along with a few others. Thank you for leaving this comment and being my first point of inspiration — and hopefully guidance!

    Best wishes,
