We rode the Co-Motion the last day of the xUSA tour the 60 miles to the Wallis Beach on the Atlantic at Portsmouth. What a beautiful day with the temperatures in the upper 60's. Even the last day was challenging as it was up and down for 45 of the 60 miles before we got near the beach. However, we did have a tailwind most of the way and the scenery was gorgeous. New England is so pretty with it incredible density of trees and historic buildings and cemeteries, canals, lakes, rivers, streams, etc. and friendly people. In fact, people all across the USA have been friendly. We live in a great country!

We did it, over 3.600 miles from Astoria, OR to Wallis Beach in Portsmouth, NH. My stoker sure deserved a kiss! A big Yeah and Oorah!
Lots of celebrating.
Our three oldest riders at 70+ pour water, which was brought from the rear wheel dipping in the Pacific Ocean, into the Atlantic Ocean.

After the beach celebration, we rode to the motel in Portsmouth.
Our last celebration dinner at restaurant on the waterway separating NH and ME.
This is ME. We wanted to bike into ME to say we had; however, the drawbridge you see in the lower right corner was under repair and the closest alternative bridge that allowed bicycles was over 20 miles away!
Well, the best way to close out this blog of our cross America bicycle tour is show how happy and proud we are of what we did. We have many memories and new friends that will certainly last a lifetime and a love of each other to go them.
We are examples of "it is never too late". What will we be our next challenge and journey - you never know!
