Motate - moving quickly with style


Home to Hometown bike tour

Done! June 16, 2013 - June 26, 2013

11 days, 736 miles, a helluva lot of fun!

I was a dumbass and had about 70 lbs of gear added to my 30ish pounds of bike. Email me about how not to be a dumbass for camping tips!

See this map in full-screen.

Hell, from the elevation profile it looks like we just coasted downhill...
