I didn't do the entire 50 States ride this time (Only the first half) but it was fun, and I feel that more people participated than in the past. There is a complete, and I mean complete, write up about it here. He actually took photos of every street sign (clever).
The photo I took shown here, was taken while riding - not recommended kids - shortly before I stopped for delicious coffee.
This is the third one (or second and a half one) I've done and the best thing about it is the way the dynamics of the city make it so different. For example the ride past the future baseball stadium. Of course the ride does change a little every year. I think this has the potential to become something truly amazing. Something like the five boros tour in New York - where people will come into town for it.
