Terri and Bruce Brown have covered more than 3,000-mile during a three-month bicycle trip from Oregon to the Iwo Jima Memorial in Arlington, Virginia. However, they have traveled not with two bikes, but one. They have kept up a blog throughout their entire journey by the name of “double-butted adventures”, which covers every hour and mile.
According to wtop.com, “Terri, 56, said she lost 80 pounds for the trip to get in shape. Bruce, 69, a retired Marine, athlete and cancer survivor who has had two hip replacements, said he’s always wanted to ride across the U.S. So, he planned the trip to raise money for Toys for Tots.”
As per wtop.com, “The couple is from North Carolina, but Bruce said that he has lived in D.C. on three different occasions. They started their trip on June 29 at DeLaura Beach in Oregon. By the end of their trip, they traveled through 12 states including Oregon, Washington state, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia. This trip was to raise funds and awareness while fulfilling a dream for both of them.”
