Carol Myers   –   Athens, Georgia

  • Retired May 1, 2015, from 32 years in higher education and 30 years with the state of Georgia.
  • May 31 – Aug. 22, 2015, rode across the country solo and self-supported on Adventure Cycling’s Northern Tier & Lakes Loop ride across the country, traveling 4144 miles from Anacortes, Washington, to Orr’s Island, Maine. It was an adventure to start the next part of my life — time alone doing something that brought me new places and people and gave me lots of alone time on the bike to look and think and listen to music.
  • Started this blog as a journal of my trip to keep in touch with family, my bike buddies, my colleagues back at Athens Tech, my Athens friends, my old friends from lives past, and with any others out there looking to follow the adventure d’une femme d’une certaine age on a bike adventure.
  • Am continuing this blog as a place to write about my thoughts and reflections on life after retirement, both on the bike and off.

    Hi Carol,
    I clicked on your blog after Heidi Davison mentioned it. Congratulations on your big adventure!! I so admire you for deciding to do this. Many years ago, I did a BRAG ride and wrote about it while working for the Banner-Herald. It was great fun and I thoroughly enjoyed it and planned to do many more ride. Alas, like many good ideas, that one fell to the wayside and I indulged in various other activities through the years before wandering back to biking in the past year or so. I look forward to following you and experiencing a solo cross-country ride vicariously!

    Wow! My brag ride was Buffalo to Poughkeepsie. I also retired after 32 years in software. There are so many good rides out there.
