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.

    I saw your post about the last day – yes, I had those exact same emotions when I completed my trip (1973, age 16, solo, 3830.4) and it brought back so many memories of what a trip was like..

    Glad that you were able to get away and do it, and had supportive employers, glad you were able to make it all the way.

    I see a reference to Danville, I presume you know the Powers, say hi to Bob and Bonnie for me.

  4. I discovered your site a few weeks ago and I enjoy reading about your adventures while I’m bored in front of my computer at my cubicle. At some point, I hope to do something like what you’re doing!

    • My friend Matt and I talked and planned our trip for over 10 years. When the time was finally right with our families and work we were able to make it happen. Good luck on making it happen for you one day.
