Stephen + Janet Rickey in Wickenburg Starbucks on way to Seattle.
What fun this morning in Starbucks Wickenburg chatting with Seattle-area velosters Stephen and Janet Rickey.
On their way back home, after a circumnavigation of America -- northern route last year to the East coast, then back home via the southern trail -- with traipses along the Erie Canal, the Texas Panhandle, and how many other cyclist destinations I cannot begin to tell you. I do know that today they made 50 miles west on US Hwy 60, and are spending the night as we speak in Wenden, AZ.
The couple writes a blog.
Check out this remarkable pair of pedalers -- their Rodriguez bikes, Schwalbe tires, Ortleib panniers, and Brooks (of course they sit Brooks) saddles. Not to mention their Itinerary.
Hope my new velo buddies check my Poppy Blog this evening. I gave them a card with contact info. If you ARE reading this, Janet and Stephen how inspiring to meet you today, marvel at a little bit of your adventures.
