So after me and Wayne planned, fundraised and cycling across America, we would like to thanks several people. First of all, to the support crew, Wheelie and Harrison. What a fantastic job these boys did for us, they cooked, cleaned, drove, took photos and videos, shopped and basically looked after us all, day and night! boys, thank you, your invited on future trips. Secondly, to all the sponsors both corporate and cival, this made a huge difference to the fundraising and the team support, thanks guys! To Maxwell at Delta Airlines, without his support Wayne would not have got home with his injury, the whole team would have been delayed and the transport of the bikes would have cost $1000's rather than $0. Finally, to our families and friends who allowed us to go and supported our quest, without their love and patience we could have never done this! Thanks all!
The 3100miles event from conception, planning and finally arriving in the USA on the west coast and flying home from the east coast went extreamly smoothly. This was largely due to the commitiment of Wayne and I, planning the event in so much detail. Lessons were taken on board and will go forward to the next event. But over all, the investment in support crew, equipment and RV was well spent.
The trip in all did not disappoint! The book of USA that was purchased before the trip for 'secret santa' provided us with some great insight into the unreal countryside we would take in during our 17 days transiting the country. 12 States, 350 Communities plus the Mountains, Deserts and Forests! This was an event that will stick with me forever!
2013 will bring new challenges for Wayne and Justin of the 3100miles team. 10 minutes of Hell in April plus planning and training for the 7650 mile, 26 states navigation around the entire USA.
