and welcome to the ride.  I will be posting daily photo-journal updates as we go along, and if you register you’ll get a brief email with the link as each is posted.  This should be in the category of the ride of a lifetime.  A spectacular route through dramatic scenery and history.  Below is the map, the itinerary, some pix, and the jersey (designed by Melissa Mahoney).  More to follow!

    Hi Lisa and Bob: This has been great to follow your trip. I’ve enjoyed the commentary. Have Cherie and Katherine joined you by now? I assumed they’d be riding by last SAT or SUN. Wd love to hear from you.
