MY NEW HERO
Meet Ruth Thomas, and marvel at her Journey Of The Ages.
Here she is studying her route in Hawaii.
She's 25 years my senior and this past spring she finished a voyage that makes my dream of a Pacific-to-Atlantic bike trip look like a training ride. She rode her bike to the smallest town in EACH of the United States. Not just coast-to-coast on Rte. 50 or the "Northern Route" or the "Southern Route" but into every single state to that state's smallest town.
It took her about 8 years. I love her!
Here's another, earlier story. Senior Cyclist A Bit Battered, But Not Blue
