My 2010 Cross-Country Bicycle Trip
- On June 11, I rode from my home to downtown Seattle's King
Street Station, took the 2:20pm Amtrak
Cascades 507 south to Eugene OR, and stayed that night at Eugene's S. S. Whiteaker Hostel.
- Starting at sunrise the next day, I rode the TransAmerica
Trail from Eugene OR toward Yorktown VA (I had already ridden this
trail from the Pacific Ocean to Eugene in 2006 and didn't repeat that
Unfortunately I suffered a collision with a careless driver midway
through Kansas, and had to complete the remainder of my journey by rental
car rather than bicycle.
In support of my University of Washington law studies, I observed as
many state court proceedings as I could along my route.
I posted comments and photographs to my blog throughout this trip: feel free to browse
Feel free to browse my complete inventory,
if you're curious what bicycling and camping equipment I used on this
trip, as well as a list of the iPhone
applications I installed before leaving.
Before leaving I also prepared the following two lists, partly for my
benefit and partly for the benefit of other TransAmerica Trail riders:
- A list of almost every city along the
TransAmerica Trail, with links to each city's Wikipedia page
- A list of selected attractions along
the TransAmerica Trail, including the addresses at which I intended to
pick up resupply packages
