Hey all,
Just got home today after touring from Seattle to San Fran, all up we rode 1,600km over 22 days putting in around 83 hours in the saddle.

After 1,678KM, 64,000+ calories burnt over 83+ hours of riding we made it from Seattle to San Fran.
We had no break downs, injurys, flat tires or significant trouble with our bikes!
What an amazing feeling to arrive into San Fran and see this golden gate bridge! Incredible!

If you have any questions just ask! Happy to help anyone plan / give advice etc !

wow looks like you had an awesome trip. Congratulations for completing the trip so successfully!

I gather it took a fair bit of preparation before flying to the states?

Of course! Unlike others that we saw along the way, my uncle (who I rode with) and I both trained, had good quality bikes with good quality parts (not factory wheels, new tires etc) unlike a lot of other riders we saw.
One person we met had 4 flats in 1 day. Less than ideal!
