I finished my crazy adventure after two months, circumnavigating Texas—all 3,000-plus miles—by bicycle.
Bicycling the Big Bend region was an unforgettable experience, with beautiful desert and mountain vistas making up for the painful hills.
Nothing beats the feeling of flying down a hill toward the picturesque El Capitan peak.
At first, I had only cows and wind turbines for company on lonely stretches of Panhandle highway. Then supporters showed up to help the miles go faster.
I struggled to keep my bike straight on stretches of desolate highway this week. When the wind was at my back, I’d never been more thankful.
Breweries in Sherman, Nocona, and Wichita Falls had just what I needed after sixty-mile days on the bike.
I cycled nearly 400 miles across East Texas this week, enjoying the kindness of strangers along the way.
I kicked off my adventure by pedaling from Brownsville to Galveston, zipping past cars stuck in Labor Day traffic.
