Farewell Family Feast & Bike Touring Advice 😂

In keeping with tradition we got the whole crew (all 19.5 of us) together for dinner before we left.

Grandchild #6 is due in late September. We aim to be back well before then so if we’re not, dispatch the cavalry. 🆘🐎

Per usual we ask a lot of questions and seek advice from fellow riders. Everyone is super friendly and eager to help and we in turn, love to share as well.

Although we have a few bike tours under our belt and have cycled a lot longer distance, cycling the Great Divide is like nothing we’ve ever attempted.

But I always say…

If you only do what you know you can do, you don’t do very much. 💁🏼‍♀️

The fam had some advice to share and we’d like to share with other riders. You’re welcome.

I mean… there’s a lot of folks on bike tours right now. #postCOVID Maybe they can benefit as well. #sharingiscaring

We’re on our way… finally

We’re going to miss our family, friends and neighbors. And we keep wondering… what person or place will inspire our next adventure. We have a few more states to hit and we haven’t cycled in Europe, Asia or South America yet. Australia? Iceland? #opentotravel

If you’re following along, thanks! More to come… we’re finally on our way.

    1. Thank you Sharon! We appreciate your prayers. Definitely lots of time for prayers while riding. So many were answered in 2018. 🙏🏻


  1. What a great inspiration you both are for all those grands! Me too but I won’t be undertaking anything on your scale. 😂 Be safe.

  2. Have a great time. Stay safe and I am so thrilled to follow your posts. Thank you for sharing!! We have been to the Great Divide, it is absolutely beautiful country. When we head west, we always want to come back to Indiana and build just one mountain!!!
    And when you return, you will have another bundle of joy to look forward too. Good job, Deb and Tom.

    1. We are so grateful for your support! The scenery is what we are most looking forward to and of course new friends we haven’t yet met. Can’t wait to meet new baby Gardner. 🥰
