Freddy ,our youngest, wants to ride his bike from Santa Monica to Chicago via Route 66. He wants me to join him. I said "why not". It will be an adventure of butt sore proportions. The ride is roughly 2400 miles (3,862 km). We plan on making the ride sometime in April/May of 2010. It will depend on Fred's job and family.
With reality setting in I realize that I need to do some saddle time. I haven't been on a bike since last summer. Not to mention losing some extra pounds.
