Made it home.
Tour went overwhelmingly well. The hospitality, interest, and excitement we encountered at every stop were inspiring. We met many inspiring and kind people along the way. I have loads of material to sift through. I wrote about some of the bikey highlights in an interview with myself (classy, huh?) over at Grist.
Mishaps usually make for better stories, though ours were all so easily overcome that they almost aren’t worth recounting. Someone’s cat peed on the tour money. That was gross. My laptop spontaneously combusted in the final week. That was inconvenient. A couple of last minute venue changes were needed. That was hectic.
Overall the thing went so smoothly that I can’t wait to do it again in the spring. Don’t tell the cat.
