AMERICA BY BICYCLE
presents
FAST AMERICA 2009

Welcome to America by Bicycle's Fast America Ride...the 2009 edition.  Every other year in the spring ABB offers this route from Costa Mesa to Amesbury MA.  It's a challenging ride averaging 115 miles a day for 31 riding days.  This ride is not for the faint of heart...makes me tired just writing about it.  Once again, my crew and I are honored to be a part of ABB's summer adventures and hope you'll enjoy following us as we cross the heart of our great country absorbing the country from the seat of a bicycle.  BOOKMARK this page and just click on the active days below and see what we're up to everyday.  If you want to check out what other rides ABB has to offer, click on their logo above.
