|My friends at Joy Homestead! I camped here for |
Lots to share! OK, where do I start?!
First, great news! Rhode Island has the first W3R Bike Route from Newport to the CT border on at Route 14A from the Cycling W3R Expedition, there may be some minor adjustments, but it is a solid route!
It is a great route!
|This is Waterman's Tavern, one of the 1781 |
encampments. This is the family who
lives there now.
I will still be fundraising until the expedition is complete. So if you would like to contribute please do!
Since I completed Rhode Island, I have come back to KC to get money coming into my business for the next sections. But if someone handed me a check to cover the trip I would head right back up the W3R and finish it! (Please call me if you have questions about this!)
This last week has been on of the greatest in my life! This expedition is much bigger than I than I could have imagined! The route, the history, and the people.

The history of Rhode Island is INCREDIBLE. Spending time with historians, business owners, and cyclists, everyone has stories to tell, that are relevant to the expedition.
The people. Oh my God...the people of Rhode Island are glorious! From Peter Rice of Newport to Lydia Rapoza of Joy Homestead in Cranston, Dianna, also Bill Downing also of Cranston, all of which I will be writing about in the next few days in the travel narratives.
|At the CT border- my next state!|
OK, that is enough for now. Look for the posts to come, and let's get me back up to complete the CT route ASAP! :)
