Well, How Did We Get Here? Miles, Feet Climbed, Maps & Profiles.

Parts One to Three described how we travelled from Seattle to Helena in the first 6 weeks of our adventure. Now find out where we went & what we did in Weeks 7 & 8! Hopefully picking a single photo to represent each day will refresh my mind when it comes to looking back on my adventure!

Tour of the USA – Weeks Five & Six

Well, How Did We Get Here? Miles, Feet Climbed, Maps & Profiles.

Part One described how we travelled from Seattle to Omak in the first two weeks of our adventure & Part Two documented our journey from Omak to East Glacier Park Village. Now find out where we went & what we did in Weeks 5 & 6! Picking a single photo to represent a day has proved almost as big a challenge as climbing a 13% gravel slope on a fully loaded bike, but then I wouldn’t want it any other way – plus it will refresh my mind when it comes to looking back on my adventure!

Tour of the USA – Weeks One & Two

Well, How Did We Get Here? Miles, Feet Climbed, Maps & Profiles.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to get in contact, saying that details of where we’ve been would be of interest. I’ve created a weekly table showing where we started & finished each stage, how far we rode & how many feet we climbed. In addition, you’ll find a weekly map & profile chart.

I’m interested in any feedback you may have, so feel free to comment on this post, or drop me a message. I’ll publish 3 updates over the coming days, each will give you a 2 week block. Going forward I’ll update on a weekly basis.

I’ve also decided to post a photo from each day – it will refresh my mind when it comes to looking back on my adventure!

Our original plan was to cycle from Concrete to Mazama on 5th May. However, due to heavy snowfall late into Spring, the Washington Pass wasn’t open, so we did a 6 day detour via Stevens Pass instead. The first of what will be a few re-routes & all part of what a BIG adventure is all about!
