Does randomness exist? Well, ever since I started riding I’ve learned that just about anything can happen!
In a fluke encounter last week in Portland, Oregon, I ran into Chase, a fellow cyclist I met along my journey in Texas. Turns out, he’s spent his summer doing the same thing I did last winter, taking off on his bike a couple months ago from North Carolina and has been headed West ever since. From the glimmer in his eye I could tell that he was having the best experience of his life… the natural high of cycling is so easy to read, it made me jealous!
Well when I saw him he was just about to finish his coast to coast trek, with only a two day jaunt to the Pacific Coast left. From the looks of his facebook page, it seems like he made it to the coast safe and sound. Well god bless you Chase, and the many others who opt to travel on two wheels and open themselves to the world!
The last time i saw him we were riding through central Texas stoppin to grub on some Kolatches!!!
