3660 miles begins with 1 pedal stroke… Introducing the Route for The Moxie Ride

OK. Reality is setting in. I have spent the past 3 days poring over the bike route for The Moxie Ride, day by day, city by city, mile by mile. 10 1/2 weeks, 75 days, 3,660 miles. Looking at the whole thing, I have to admit, I am feeling a bit of fear, trepidation, and overwhelm.

But then I think about other big things I’ve accomplished in my life. Each of them would have similarly overwhelmed me had I kept my focus on the enormous challenge instead of the next step. I accomplished law school by keeping my head down and executing. Same thing with writing books – head down, page by page, chapter by chapter.

But I also realize that if I keep my head down and just stare at the road in front of me the entire route without looking up at the big picture, I will miss out. I will miss out on being inspired by The Moxie Ride, being invigorated by the excitement of our progress, and experiencing the adventure as it unfolds. I need those to fuel me for the next mile.

A journey of (three) thousand miles does indeed begin with one step (or one pedal stroke). Got it. But instead of just focusing on the next pedal stroke or just focusing on the enormity of 3660 miles, I am going to oscillate between them. I will balance the fear with the inspiration. 

So, now I share with you the route so you can share with me the juxtaposed feelings of fear and inspiration. Drum roll, please. Introducing the coast-to-coast route for The Moxie Ride:
