Shawn Rathbun – Grand Rapids, MI
I have dreamed of bicycling across the country since I was a kid and read about the BikeCentennial group in my local newspaper. In the summer of 2014, my husband and I were able to live the dream and spent the summer bicycling across the northern tier of the US (and parts of southern Canada). We made memories to last a lifetime and experienced so many kindnesses from people we met along the way. (We journaled our adventures on www.rathbike.com if you’re interested in reading more.) I hope to have another summer like this someday, but in the meantime, I will continue on with my everyday biking!
