I can’t believe we’ve gone over 2,000 miles already.  Tomorrow we cross into Colorado and change into Mountain Time Zone.  We’ve got several builds ahead, with a double-build coming up in Colorado Springs.  Five more days of riding before then.

Double Build Day in Bartlesville, OK

We stopped in Bartlesville, OK for a two-day build with the local Habitat for Humanity chapter. Our team put up siding, caulked, and painted the interior and exterior.

Live Love Ride Remember

NC2SD 12 celebrates the life of Christina Clarke Genco

A few days ago our trip stopped to remember the loss of Christina Clarke Genco, a veteran Bike & Builder whose life was tragically cut short last summer.  A foundation has since been created in her honor, and a memorial ride took place just a few weeks ago.  To learn more, please visit the Christina Clarke Genco Foundation’s website:

A day off in Memphis, TN

Walking in Memphis, with Camelbaks

With over a thousand miles under our belts, we came to our first day off in Memphis, Tennessee.  We enjoyed wandering the city, visiting places like the Civil Rights Museum, and sampling rival barbecue restaurants.  I was fortunate enough to catch up with a friend who’s currently teaching in Memphis… kind of a surreal experience to have biked to see her.
