One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

As mentioned above, I rode 3,000 miles from Alabama to California on a bamboo bike. It was such an amazing experience. I learned so much about myself and the human spirit. My mind goes back to many memories and places during those two months, and I learn something new from those memories. I will never stop processing the ride and the things I learned along the way.
