ManBikeWorld: Bucket List 2.0 West national parks, monuments, forests, BC and the PCH!

Meandering north and visiting western states, monuments, forests, national parks, BC, and the Pacific Coast Highway!

By Russ McCoy


#925 – posted Sunday April 12, 2020 by Neil Gunton

In 2014, I sold my house, quit my job and rode my bicycle 4500 miles around the western US, Canada, and the Pacific Coast Highway. I liked it so much, I’m going to do it again! (well, the last part anyways)

I learned a lot on that little bicycle ride: That there is an inherent desire built into all of us for reaching out and connecting with others… That my own personal power, persistence and stubbornness is equivalent to 15 lbs and three weeks … That travelling partners are fun… That there are amazing things right here in our own backyard… What it’s like to hitchhike for the first time… How 10 hours of sunlight will immediately reveal each and every spot NOT covered in sunscreen… That not all WIFI is created equal… That dynohubs are the best… That hypothermia and hyperthermia differ by only one letter and one week… When looking for a ride, a limp is better than a thumb… and many, many more things!

In May of 2015, I’ll try to gather up a group of likewise minded touring cyclists to further explore other national parks, monuments, forests, British Columbia and a return to the PCH!

I hope you’ll follow along! – read this journal
