Team revels in major milestone as trailblazer Cathy Rogers crosses the USA on Pedego electric bike.
Cathy Rogers, the woman who has been pedaling a Pedego® electric bike across the USA, has reached another major milestone: the halfway point between the West Coast, where she began her journey, and the East Coast, her destination. The Big Ride Across America team has now biked 1,699 miles -- landing in Huron, S.D., where the team is celebrating the achievement. "The idea that a casual cyclist like myself could actually ride a bicycle across America is quite amazing," Rogers says. "The joy I feel when I ride my Pedego Interceptor electric bike is incredible. I am having so much fun and reaching a bucket-list goal."
The team's epic journey began on June 16th in Washington State, and they have spent the past 24 days traveling a northerly path that led through the Cascade Mountains, Idaho and the Rockies, continuing through the Montana wilderness, dipping into Wyoming and reaching the halfway point in South Dakota. Rogers has been appreciating the slices of Americana that they see along the way. "The small towns with tidy houses have warm front porches with swings where they sit and visit with each other," she says. "The local coffee shops and cafes have the sweetest people who talk to us and are happy to see us pass through their town."
While riding to raise funds for the American Lung Association of the Mountain Pacific, the team has enjoyed a lot of camaraderie -- the kind that can only be built during an exceptional shared journey. Because she is able to maintain a swift pace on her Pedego Interceptor, they're putting Rogers in the lead position for portions of the ride. "My husband loves the pacing and drafting that the Pedego electric bike provides," she reports. "I don't mind riding as a team to pace him." They have been married 35 years and are enjoying the constant togetherness on the trip as well.
Rogers might not have been able to accomplish bicycling halfway across America without the help of her Pedego electric bicycle. Rogers says that her bright orange Pedego Interceptor is making it possible for her to keep up with the fast pace of the riders on this coast-to-coast ride. She emphasizes that even a casual cyclist can now take on a long-range cycling adventure with the help of a Pedego electric bike. Pedego is opening up these kinds of events, allowing more people to experience the fun and excitement of this kind of major bucket-list activity.
Rogers' lifelong interest in cycling led to her founding Aero Tech Designs, a cyclewear company for avid cyclists. Prior to founding her company, she made cycling clothes for friends out of bathing suit material that would stretch with the rider. This vast improvement in comfort resulted in a thriving business.
