What is a Milestone Ride?
Once upon a time, you were meandering through a quiet 2 lane highway, and all of a sudden, you see a strange vehicle on the road. It resembles that of a bicycle, but you’re not sure as the shape is not of a human on top of skinny tubes, but rather a human on a bulging object.
You take a closer look and see that it is a smiling cyclist spinning to her heart’s content. Hanging off her bike are what appear to be bags. You find out from her at the next gas station that she is a bicycle tourist and she is riding to some place unimaginably far for a car, but impossible for a bicycle (so you thought at the time).
You go home and jump on the Internet and to find out more about this. Lo’ and behold there are tons and tons of images, articles, and other “crazy guys” doing this bicycle touring thing.
After a few hours of reading and looking at images, it hits you.
