Day 29: Key West, FL!

We made it! Thanks so much to all our family, friends and supporters! We love you and we couldn’t have done it without you. We’ll post more later. For now, we’re going to get some much needed sleep.


  1. Barb and Buck Gongaware

    Woohoo! Congratulations!

    We are so impressed at your incredible endurance and determination. And, we loved how this journey has impacted more than just your leg muscles. Your writings show a deeper side and meaningful message. We can only hope to achieve a journey a fraction as great as yours. You’ve inspired us all so much and we are proud to tell everyone about your feat. We love you so much and can’t wait to see you.

    Buck, Barb, Anna, Grace, Lily, and Faith

    I could not have imagined a more fitting photo, “End 1”. The end of quite the adventure.

    I suspect during the trip there were occasions when you had to summon all your perseverance to keep things afloat – the many flat tires, the hassle on NYC streets, the mishap on the bridge, the high temperatures and headwinds. Many would have bailed out, but you three did not. I’m sure I speak for most, if not all, when I write, “Our hats are off to you!”


    PS: Please tell Dr. Langston we all say “Thanks!” for all her good work. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

    Congratulations for finishing a journey that was much more that just miles ridden.
    Your determination to continue on with a sense of humor as shown in the photos is amazing.
    Do we have a vote for the best milkshake on the east coast?
    Kudos to you all!

    I’m proud of your accomplishment and having been able to help equip you for the adventure.
    With such a positive cause driving your mission I had no doubt you all would complete the route.
    You have all done a marvelous job illustrating the transformative power of the bicycle.
    Simply inspiring.
