In 2006/07 we spent the boys' third grade cycling around the USA and Mexico. We pedaled 9300 miles through 19 US states and 5 Mexican states. A journal of that trip can be found here and a slideshow of that trip can be found here.

From 2008 - 2011 we cycled from Alaska to Argentina. It was a journey of 17,300 miles through fifteen countries. Our sons now hold the world record as the youngest people to cycle the length of the Americas. We're still working on a book about that journey, but you can find our journal here and a slideshow here.
