Boston to New York City 4 days 270 mi, 13,600 feet climb
It's interesting that most friends and acquaintances have expressed reservations about this trip...the length, going solo, the western headwinds. But after a while there is a change in their attitude to that of acceptance and support. It's as if there has been a change in their own recognition that life has many open doors and it's up to us to individually step through; that we not become so entrenched in our day-to-day patterns that we don't recognize the unfolding of life in its deeper significance. That we follow that voice that beckons us to an untried path which moulds us anew.
That's hefty ideas for a bike ride.
