The next day, friends John and Chad stopped in during the fourth day of their trip from their home in Erie, PA. They are headed to Astoria, OR, where they will stay to start new lives and careers on the west coast. They were headed to Findlay Lake State Park to camp for the night, so we provided them with some bicycle-friendly directions.
Ironically, when we mentioned to John and Chad that we had two other cross-country visitors the day before, they said, "You mean the ones on the way to Colorado Springs? We camped with them in Ashtabula!"
Good luck to both pairs of riders! You can see more photos of long-distance touring cyclists that have visited all three of our stores in our Bicycle Touring Photo Gallery.
