There is More than One Moral to a Good Story – Biking Across Countries
Needless to say, the five of us made it to the coast. We all accomplished our own goals and helped each other out along the way. I keep in touch with these guys regularly and I reckon I made some lifelong friends.
I could begin naming a thousand reasons why this trip across the US was life-changing, but that’s not what you want to hear. This article is for you guys after all.
If I can inspire even one person to go out and start pursuing their dream, I have made an impact.
I purposely didn’t break down the “How To Bike Across the USA” all that much. The truth is, an adventure like this can be whatever you make of it. It’s a DIY trek, and there isn’t a set of rules or a handbook for this sort of thing.
hat’s the beauty of it. You get to experience absolute freedom. I feel freer out on the road with my fully loaded bike, cruising at a measly pace, than at any other time in my life.
I don’t have any regrets from traveling. The only regrets I have in life spur from missed opportunities. It’s better to go and wish you hadn’t, then to not go and wish you had.
I loved this trip across America so much that I am going to continue pursuing my dream to cycle across all seven continents.
Most dreams can’t be accomplished alone, and luckily, they don’t have to be. There are billions of good people out there in the world that will gladly lend a helping hand. “Be good to others and they will be good to you.” That statement has always held true throughout my travels.
The hospitality I witnessed on this trip gave me a great outlook on the world and on my own life.
I’ve been told I’m too trusting of strangers. I just try to look for the good in people. In my experience, a mix of optimism and hard work can get you through anything. Until I’m proven wrong I’m going to continue believing that.
Don’t just coast through life. The thing about coasting is, you can only coast downhill. Pedal to the top of as many mountains as you can. That makes the downhills much more enjoyable!
