So the plan is to bike across the U.S. from San Francisco, CA to Fairfield, Ct. I (Joe Ruscito) will be riding as well as my friend Luc Gubinski, and we plan to start in California on the 6th of August. We are doing it as a great way to see the country as well as try our best to help Simply Similes, a Charity based out of CT. We are being supported by our main sponsor, a great bike shop, out of Oakland, CA, Bay Area Bikes. Check out their site www.bayareabikes.com. Attached is a map of our tentative route, mainly consisting of Route 50. More info to come soon.
