A friend of ours, Anne, began a 3,000 mile bike tour from the East Coast to the West Coast on May 1st. There was a send-off gathering at a local pub where I gave her a Hohner Blues Band Harmonica for the trip. Luckily it didn’t add too much weight to her gear and she promised to learn how to play it during her three-month excursion. I expect a concert when she returns.
When the weather cooperates, I try to ride my bike to work, which is only eight miles each way. While there are a number of significant climbs, I can’t imagine what Anne’s experience will be like. 3,000 miles would be almost 200 round trips to work for me. I am very impressed with what she is doing and wish her well!
