Photography ~ Facebook– June 2016 Photo-a-Day Challenge–Day 11

Since I cannot submit a collage, I have to find a single photograph to represent my 2008 [odyssey] rides.

The  prompt is: If I wrote a novel, it would be about…

…a 2008 Coast-to-Coast [and more] Cycling Odyssey

Niagara Falls

This novel would begin with a Catrike Rally in Winter Garden, Florida, followed by the Face of America Ride from Bethesda, Maryland to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Late June ’08 began the actual odyssey by biking in Virginia & Tennessee; then a drive [with a breakdown in South Dakoda] to Idaho, then on to Wenatchee & Seattle, Washington; from Seattle a one-day [204-mile] bike ride to Portland, Oregon; follow that with a drive to Minnesota for a short visit with Hazel. Go from there to Iowa for RAGBRAI. Meet friends in Illinois and ride with them. Go home for a few days before driving to Buffalo, New York to ride with cyclist at Niagara. Home again, then to Georgia and later to Charleston, South Carolina for more riding.

Two Thousand Eight was a heck of a cycling year. I am glad I documented enough of the story that [if I were so inclined] I could indeed write a novel about a fictionized character who took on these feats and met the challenges as they happened. Could there be “a Best Seller” here?

June 29, 2008, the cyclist on the ’08 Trikes Only Tour at Coeur d’Alene, Idaho happened upon a wedding.
