I am done with Missouri…or some would say Missouri is done with me… and my fellow TransAm riders who entered Kansas today. Air temperatures have been in the mid nineties, but road temperatures have reached 105 degrees. Locals say this high a heat usually doesn’t arrive until July. The hottest time of day is between 2-4. We try to find someplace to lay low for a time, unless water resources are high enough to frequently douse your head.
The Ozark Mountains are not my favorite place to ride...lots and lots of short, very steep hills...but also very pretty rural scenery.

And so it begins...with a dip of the rear wheel into the Atlantic waters on the Yorktown, Virginia beach on May 14, 2016.

This is a brief account of Jenny and my bike tour along the Danube River from Passau, Germany to Viena, Austria in September 2015, just as the Syrian refugee crisis captured the world.
|Blackie was a stow away to Passau, Germany. Turns out he was eager to go on another bike tour. This time on the Danube to Vienna. This bear wants to strive to be Bearthoven!|
