Don Forth “Ocean 2 Ocean” Ride
Don Forth has decided to blaze his own trail this year and do a 3,100 mile solo, unsupported bicycle ride from Santa Monica, CA to Virginia Beach, VA.
He will be following old Route 66 starting at the Pacific ocean, crossing California, the Mojave Desert, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma and up into Missouri where he will pick up USBR 76 and continue across Illinois, Kentucky and Virginia to the Atlantic ocean ( 9 states in total).
There will be no support vehicles following Don. He will need to closely manage his food and water supply to not run out as there are long stretches with no access to food or water. He will be totally reliant on his own planning ability. His lodging will mainly consist of sleeping in a bivvy under the stars!
Don will be traveling light to allow for riding around 150 – 200 miles a day, which means just the clothes on his back and rain gear for inclement weather.
