Portland to Boston 2008

From sea to shining sea

In 2008, Doug finished a solo bike ride across the USA, biking from Portland, Oregon to Boston, Massachusetts to prove that he could meet the challenges of Parkinson’s Disease head on. Here’s a photo chronicle of his journey:

Kicking Off in Portland, Oregon

Pacific Ocean – Oregon

Half way up Loveland Pass, just past Arapahoe ski area. The ride was about to get hard.

At top of Loveland Pass, the fulfillment of a life

Somewhere in Eastern Missouri, probably Mark Twain Lake. The store owner treated me to lunch.

On the shore of Lake Erie in New York, on the way to Boston.

End of the road: the U.S.S. Constitution in Boston. I finally made it all the way from sea to shining sea!
