The Countdown is on!

On June 21, 2012 Chris Dittmore and Matt Swinnerton will dip the rear wheels of our bicycles in the Pacific Ocean.  We’ll then mount our bikes, pedal across the Golden Gate bridge and head out on our 2 month, 3,934 mile, 112,269 feet of climbing cycling adventure across America ending in Boston on Aug 19th and concluding by dipping our front wheels in the Atlantic Ocean.  During our trip we’ll be writing our observations, posting photos and sharing our daily riding stats on this blog.  This has been a dream of ours for many years and fortunately we both have families and employers that are very supportive of us fulfilling our shared dream.  Enjoy following our adventure and hopefully one evening after reading our blog you’ll crack open a beer or pour yourself a glass of wine and decide that if Matt & Chris can do this you can take the first step to fulfilling your own dreams even if they don’t involve cycling across America.

  1. Hey Matt! We will be in Cooperstown for the week you are passing through! Maybe we will follow you to the finish line! What an amazing quest! I look forward to living vicariously through you! Anne
