Re: will my bike make it from dc to chicago
I suppose it's possible, but I would do some serious rides of shorter distance first to work out whatever problems you may encounter. I would think that both of those cities would be difficult to enter or leave on a motor bicycle. Super highways and such. If I were doing a long distance ride I would want it to be someplace with little traffic, places to camp, etc. I like to ride, but count me out.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
