Thank you to tonights speaker, Mike Matts, for sharing his vision and fulfilling his dream of riding across American with LWA.  Mike came to us live, from New York, via the LWA Virtual Monthly Membership Meeting.  Back in 1977, Mike had a vision, his vision was to ride across America someday...when he had enough time.  That time came in 2019 when Mike retired.  Mike trained, Mike rode and Mike conquored, the Adventure Cycling TransAM Westward ride on his Surly Disc Trucker. Mike shared his 2019 Adventure Cycling ride, which started on May 12, 2019 in Williamsburg, VA and ended 79 days later in Florence, OR on July 28th.  Mike invites you to read his blog: www.MikesEpicRide.com
LWA Member's if you have the vision to make the ride, contact Mike on his blog site, or if you subscribe to Adventure Cycling Magazine check out the rides posted for late Summer and early Fall 2019.  Adventure Cycling magazine also has a section, Companions Wanted, which provides partners for tours, both domestic and abroad.  
Thank you Mike for sharing your TransAM Westward ride experience with LWA.  We invite you to ride with LWA, when you are in the Lehigh Valley. 
Roberta Kates, LWA Club President
