San Francisco to New York City by bicycle
In early 2019 I came up with the probably weird idea to ride my bike from San Francisco to New York City.
The trip, which started April 28th, 2019 in San Francisco, was about 4300 miles (6900 km) long and came with a challenge of 210.000 feet in elevation gain. It took roughly 60 days to complete the full journey.
The first part of the trip – roughly 3000 miles from San Francisco to Lexington, Kentucky – I did by myself. In Lexington, my son Tim then joined me in June 2019 on his bike for the remainder to New York City. That was another 1000 miles.
You can find more infos about the trip itself on the Trip page.
While on the trip, I did my best to update this site with a blog post every day and push those updates to my Twitter account, too, once I had embarked on the journey. You can read all the daily blog posts on the Posts page.
In search of the American Dream and curious to see what’s I would find out there, I left San Francisco on my bike on April 28th, 2019.
It was an epic trip!
