The TransAmerica Bicycle Route:
A Lesson in Perseverance
In 2010 Bruce and a friend bicycled the TransAmerica Bicycle Route, a 4,250 mile journey, self-supported, carrying what they needed for the trip on their bicycles. The trip was an exciting, arduous, inspiring trek that took them two-and-a-half months to complete. Along the way they met numerous people also riding the trail, many of them from other countries, and had many interesting experiences.
To share this experience with others, Bruce put together a 45-minute PowerPoint presentation, aided by photos from his laptop, and followed by a 15-minute Question and Answer session.
The trip reinforced in us the fact that America is a great, beautiful country and Americans are wonderful people, and I stress that in the program.
