Kyle’s Update: Hello everyone! As you may have heard, Kyle started his 3,400 mile journey today from Ithaca, NY, where he has resided for the past two years, towards the Pacific Ocean, fully self-supported via bicycle. His route includes roads through New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and finally Washington. I’m Kyle’s brother Steve and I’ll do my best to keep everyone in the loop over the next 7ish weeks.
Kyle left 35 degree Ithaca this morning at 7:30am under mostly sunny skies and headed west. Kyle’s dad and brother Kenley were in attendance to see him off. Kyle just reached Wellsville, NY, his resting place for the evening, capping a long and hilly 98 mile first day. As he’s carrying everything on his bike that he needs to survive the majority of the summer alone, Kyle’s bike and gear account for approximately 90 pounds more than his usual training bike. In addition to the weight, hills, headwinds, and late spring weather, this will be a tremendous challenge! Please feel free to respond to this update with encouragement for Kyle and please also email any further recipients if you would like future updates sent to additional friends/family. I hope you can, as I will, enjoy living vicariously through Kyle’s adventure!
Keep Peddling Kyle!!
