2019 brings a fresh start to Jeff’s Quest for the West. On June 12, he will pick up where he left off in July 2018 when emergency eye surgery brought a dramatic end to his bicycle ride across the United States. Jeff, Karen and Buddy will soon be making their way back to Missoula, Montana where Jeff will be riding the Transamerica Trail from the border of Montana through Idaho and on to Florence, Oregon. On this map it looks easy. Last year, Jeff cycled 3,200 miles spanning the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, the Appalachian Range of Kentucky, the Ozarks of Missouri, the flats of Kansas, the Colorado Rockies, the Wind River Range of Wyoming, and the Bitterroots of Montana. What’s left? Only the Sawtooths of Idaho, Cascades of Oregon, and coastal range. Eight hundred fifty miles of cycling bliss. Follow us as the Quest for the West resumes, with many more interesting people to meet along the way.
