personal blog of Jonathan Fretheim


The trip is over. I rode a total of 4,765 miles this summer in a great zig-zagging arc across the United States.

There’s more to say about Philadelphia and arriving at the shore (both of which were inspiring moments), but I’ll say it all later. I’m in New York for a couple of days and I’ve shipped the bicycle back to California already. From here I’m headed to Boston by bus for two nights, and then to Champaign, IL by plane and will be there for about a week. Friends, I’ll be back in California the weekend of the 20th; let’s celebrate.

HURRAY!!!! Congratulations on a wonderful journey that has been an inspiration to all of your friends and family. Parker and Emma are extremely proud, and have already planned their bicycle trek across the country (maybe in 15 years or so). Have a good trip back to California letting someone else power your way!

Now the work begins of writing that best selling book about your experience!
