For a long time I had discussed business over the phone with Dan, an employee
of a company that I knew was somewhere in West Virginia. It was not until much
later that I made the connection between Dan's workplace and our cross-country
bike route, and he invited us to stop by on our way through Fenwick. It would
have been nice to stop and ... It was strange to ride for so long without seeing
where we were going, as if this was a road to nowhere. Finally, halfway across
the bridge, ...

I still have a photograph on my wall, going back to the 1930s, of the two young
good-looking people who would eventually become my parents riding a
Velocette somewhere ... Not only did the bike provide a convincing feeling of
liberation as they rode across the countries of Latin America, like speeded up
gauchos, leaving troubles behind them, but it brought them into contact with the
proletariat every time it broke down ... It was always likely to end in tears, the
journey across America.

Taking in sunset on the motel porch, we watched Fourth of July fireworks on a
darkening vista, knowing that somewhere out on that jagged, snowy horizon was
tomorrow's destination. We were on the road at first light on July 5, temperature in
the forties, bound for Logan Pass. Park rules dictated the early start, as cyclists
have to be off the Going-to-the-Sun climb before 11:00 A.M. to avoid blocking
traffic. I'd ridden this road dozens of times in my mind. On the mapping software,
it's a 6 ...

... from the bike and rode into Bikin in the afternoon. A couple from Khabarovsk
stopped and chatted. They take groups of Americans fishing in the north, to catch
something or other. The man set a world record in July for catching a 50lb fish on
a 17lb test line. They suggested somewhere we might be able ... I set off from
Bikin feeling quite tired - my legs take a while to get going after a stop. It was hilly
on the map, but actually wasn't as bad as expected - gentler climbs and descents.

and innumerable 6K races, I no longer had the ambition to train day- in and day-

an additional 200 miles to finish the Long Trail in Vermont. Thus somewhere

If we could get it out of our bike bags in time it proved quite effective, but the times
that I needed it the most I couldn't get to it fast enough. I resorted to high-pitched
screaming and kicking, which usually warded off the attack. The dogs on the well-
traveled bicycle route were so savvy that you only had to wave the can of spray at
them. ... There were no vacant camp sites, so we tried to inconspicuously hang
around the picnic area waiting for nightfall so we could just flop somewhere.

Somewhere, deep inside, I feel the first rumblings of caustic anger–sharp,
searing I-am-going-to-murder-someone anger. You could say that Kadian had
been born from a bike. Debora and I met when we took part in Bike Aid, a coast-
to-coast charity ride across America in 1987. Our route would take nine weeks,
and snaked over three thousand miles across the US, from Portland, Oregon, on
the west coast to Washington DC on the east. There were thirty of us in all, mostly
students.

The most effective way to lower the quality of travel is to go somewhere. "Going to
the lake" is a functional process, with the road an obstacle lying in the way. "
Going out for a ride" is an entirely different experience — even if you take the
same route and end up at the lake. People touring on bicycles usually discover
this before they burn out, quickly learning to keep their goals loosely stated and
in the background. It's the only way to enjoy the road: if you're just trying to "get
somewhere" ...
