That Cycling Chick's

Has made it! To NYC, NY.

$0.00 spent 
8600km cycled 

Today, even though I am still not following any scenic bike trails, I have to say that I am quite impressed with the road.

Highway 40, which takes me all the way to Havre de Grace, has a very wide shoulder. It is systematically marked as a bike path and there are plenty...

I take a rest day in the capital in order to stretch my legs and take some culture in. And also, as it’s the obvious LOGICAL next step to anyone who’s cycled across the country: to take over the White House.

The culture is great. I visit the Renwick Gallery, the Hirshho...

Oh, how far have I come from the scenic, calm, tiny roads of ACA bike trails. Very, very far.

First challenge of the day: get across the Potomac River Bridge that does not allow cyclists on. Easy: hitch a ride.

Second challenge: not abandon riding on a 4-lane highway and...

Time to venture into the East Coast jungle.

Many have warned me against the overpopulated roads and crazy drivers so I am pretty anxious about the upcoming ride. I will not be following a bike trail anymore, so people might not be used to sharing the road with cyclists....

To do today: cross the continent by bike.

Once I get to Yorktown, I will have cycled across the United States, without money and with a breathing machine in my panniers, all by myself, like a big girl.

Well, turns out that if you get in the saddle at noon and take an hou...

Today’s road is flat, bike-friendly and easy. Not much to report, really.

Apart from one societal issue I have noticed.

Ever since I left San Francisco, I have not seen a single black person in the whole of the US. That is, until I got to Charlottesville and went through...

I don’t really have much to say about the road. 88 km of asphalt going east. Voilà. You know everything.

No, today, the trail takes me by Monticello: Thomas Jefferson’s plantation (or residence, in plain English). I enquire about a visit but it’s $28 and lasts for over...

My yesterday’s efforts are rewarded early on this morning. First, I’m greeted by the Sun: shining strong, shining through. The terrain: it has finally started veering towards more of a descent than a climb. The views: I’m atop one of the most beautiful passages of the...

I am sooo anxious. About the climb. I procrastinate however I can: I take hours to eat my breakfast (a double one!), I stop for an hour at the visitors centre on the way out of town, I sit by the side of the road for over 45 minutes to call up my office. Anything BUT t...
