Bicycle adventure coast to coast across America with Howard and Frosty Wooldridge in the summer of 2012

Join us as we pedal from the Pacific Ocean on the Oregon coast to Washington DC on the Atlantic.  As the journey moves across this wondrous continent, I will write stories from the road on this website’s blog.  Stay tuned.

We will be following Howard’s coast to coast horseback route from his epic ride in 2003.  You will enjoy majestic mountain passes, raging white water rivers, enormous wilderness beauty, spring flowers, hummingbirds, migrating fowl, buffalo and spectacular wild animals.  From the Rocky Mountains across the Great Plains to the Blue Ridge Sky Line Drive.  It will be a most amazing adventure.

We will cross the Oregon Trail, Jim Bridger’s hunting areas, Lewis and Clark’s trail, mountain man rendezvous, Pony Express Route, Route 66, Daniel Boone country, Great Smokey Mountains, Blue Ridge Skyline Drive and into Washington DC.

We will video the entire journey for a documentary that features sights, sounds and the amazing experiences that occur on this bicycle adventure.  You will share with the wild, crazy and interesting people along the way.  Additionally, Frosty will write a book:  Bicycle Adventure Across America: Pounding the Pedals for Life, Joy and Laughter.

Bicycling will change your life, thrill your body, accent your spirit and provide you with pictures, hilarious moments, a boatload of memories and a basketful of pictures to remember for your lifetime.
