East Coast Bikepacking

This August - October, I'll be cycling from the northern end of Maine to the tip of Florida across nearly 2 months. It's something I've wanted to do for years, and I'm not sure when I'll have the chance to do something as incredible, so I'm going all in! 

I'm planning lots of my journey and documenting here and on RideWithGPS, Instagram, and Strava. Follow along with me as I travel along the East Coast, meet new people, see new sights, and push myself mentally and physically. 

I'm also fundraising for a local charity, Bikes Not Bombs, so check out my fundraising page below.

Check here to check my daily routes, my journal of each day, and the expected weather conditions throughout the trip. You can see each route on the map, trip lengths (distance and duration), the elevation changes, and landmarks I've passed by along the way.

I'll be journaling every day (see below), so check back regularly to see the newest pictures and updates. Or check out my Google Photos album ad Instagram page.

Daily Journal

I'll be keeping a journal of each day's travels, including my expectations before the journey and my thoughts following the ride. 

I'm Fundraising!

I'm raising money for Bikes Not Bombs, a local non-profit in Boston. Their mission is to "use the bicycle as a means of social change", providing bikes, lessons, training, tools, and more for underprivileged communities in Boston and the global south.

They're a great organization and I'm hoping to raise $1 for every mile I ride, about $3200 in total. Please check out my fundraising page to learn more and give what you can. It would mean so much to me.


Track Me Live!

I haven't quite figured this out yet, but it seems like I'll be sending out a link every day to those interested in tracking me. So let me know if you'd like to be one of those people!

If you're just interested in checking out where I've been and stats about my ride performance, you can check out my Strava page. 

My Schedule

If you're curious about my schedule, where and how far I'll be going, here's a quick table summarizing everything. I'm averaging just under 70 miles each day of cycling, but obviously some days are going to be longer/shorter than others. If you want to learn more about each day, check out "The Journey" page.

If you live/know people who live in any end city marked as "TBD" and would be willing to host me for a night, please let me know! Not only am I trying to keep costs down, but it would be really fun to stay with friends/family as well as with new people.
