W2E credit card TransAm on Trek FX+ electric bike
« on: October 10, 2011, 07:45:00 pm »
My husband & I just cycled the first half of the TransAm, from the Oregon coast to Pueblo, CO. Will do the second half next year. We're weak riders, averaging 40-50 miles daily, all motels (didn't carry camping gear). He's  60 with COPD, lung lymphoma, 2 new knees and a new hip and rode a 2011 Trek FX+ electric assist bike (I rode a 20 year old Raleigh mountain bike). Wanted to post this so anyone sitting on the fence knows they can do it too :)

Thanks for sharing. I like that you two found a way to tour together.  I know so many people who think that they can't do anything strenuous because of some physical problems.

When it became apparent last year riding in Bryce Canyon that Don wouldn't be able to do the hills, I was envisioning some sort of semi-sagged ride with our RV. He watches all those shows like "How It's Made" and "How Do They Do It" and thought of the electric bike. I never even knew there was such a thing, especially from a major manufacturer like Trek. Had to share how it worked out!
