I would like to ride my bicycle across the country. This is a goal which I would like to reach in the next four years, but the sooner the better. I would probably make it a summer trip, starting out in May or June. I then would ride as many miles as possible a day, trying to hit relatives' homes along the way, for free lodging and a good meal. Money would be a problem, but I would spend as little as possible, eating little, but free food such as fruit, and sleeping outside, where it would be free. I would like to eventually end up in California or Oregon.
