WHO? -Four long-time friends, Hiro and Junko from Japan and Dave and Michelle from the USA.

How long have we thought about this? 10 years. During our 400 kilometer cycle tour together; 'Pittsburgh PA to Washington D.C.: 2009., Riding the Great Allegheny Passage and C & O Towpath', the hook was set. Still, it took us four years before the time was right. Now we are doing it and this blog is our story.
