I have been gone on my west coast bike mission for over 2 months now and time has flown! I have travelled the west coast of the states twice over , ridden LA, SF, Portland, Seattle and Vegas and had myself a ball! Last week i took the Amtrak from Portland to Seattle and had a great week riding around the cities. Both are very bike friendly and although Seattle is very hilly they are both really fun places to ride. Im Seattle , I met with my buddies Sara and Mei and we had an amazing time exploring!
I took advantage of an amazing Jet Blue Airways promotion which meant my bike travelled free and i could watch the live streaming of the Tour de France on the plane . It runs till end of the month so get in there if you want to travel with your bike !I also took a ride on Saras’ sweet Nishiki and was intensely jealous of her sweet skull valve caps!
Two more weeks in this fine country then back to the UK just in time for the last gasps of a British summer!
