    The Route and indoor training.

    November 26, 2013
    I officially took my bike off the road tonight and have set up the indoor trainer.  Im going to become and expert on this thing over the next 5 months as this will be my primary source of training as I prepare to ride 7400 KM.  Speaking of that John Adams and I met a few weeks ago and finalized a route.  John brought a map of every province he picked up at the local CAA.  I think planning the route made me realize that this is more than likely going to happen.  There are still lots of details to work out, like getting a support vehicle and a driver in place and trying to figure out where we will sleep and eat for 70 days next summer as I make my way across the country but hopefully over the next few months these details will come together. Check out the Route link on the website to see where and when this ride will take us.  We are having a conference call with everyone involved in planning this event tomorrow night.  Im looking forward to continuing planning.  I also plan to start training this week.  I'll update the blog on how that is going.  Jon and Kim have sent some recent pictures of Avery and she has been doing well, she is gaining weight and doing well.  When I start to doubt if something like biking across the country is even possible, Avery's smiling face is a real reminder of why we are doing this.
