Finally my dream is getting true :) I am cycling the Southern Tier Route (westbound). Hoping to cross the Mexico border before January and continue cycling Central and South America. I have started cycling from Oviedo, FL on 14th of October. Currently I am in Alachua, FL 10 miles north of Gainesville, FL. Unfortunately i have numbness in my left hand especially i do not feel my pinky finger.
I am sooo thankful to the ladies whom i met in one of the campgrounds, they let me stay in their house for couple of days. Tomorrow i will go to Bikes and More in Gainesville for free fitting and get a pair of more padded gloves and hopefully continue cycling.
Camping alone and cycling alone is a little bit boring (and scary with the black bears) i would love to have a company. I have not tried stealth camping and paying for campgrounds also made a big hole in my limited budget.
my cell phone is (1) 347.619.45.99 and my e-mail is nuzerel(at)gmail(dot)com
i will be really happy if you host me on the way.
love & peace
p.s. i am a solo female cyclist from istanbul/turkey and this is my first long distance ride :) i have had week long rides in my country. if you host me i can cook some delicious dishes from turkish cuisine.
