Jodee and Heather Finish in Oregon

Just a Bit Farther - Biking Across the USA

Presented by Jodee Varney

Jodee Varney set off with her sister, Heather, on June 15, 2015 to cross North America by bicycle. Prior to starting the trip, neither had ever been on a single overnight bike trip, and Heather's longest bike ride was less than 20 miles. They biked westbound from Boston to Seaside Oregon via many backroads and a few Interstate freeways, camping almost every night, while carrying 20-23 pounds of gear each.  They met lots of real people, and visited some places that many of us have never heard of. Come see photo highlights, hear tales that may renew your faith in humanity, and learn about ultralight bicycle touring.
