Their journey began in London this past May and has taken them through France, China, Iran, Libya, Egypt and now finally America – just to name a few. Susie grinned widely, as she always does, when we asked her about when they would arrive back in London. Cycling an average of 85 miles a day, they plan to reach Miami by February 5th and be back home in London soon after. “When we get back home we are going to have a huge party!”, Susie said. You might think they’d take a break from riding, but when they return, they plan to ride in a race.
After spending the evening enjoying southern hospitality here in Baton Rouge at the home of Gulf South Solar president, Jeff Shaw and experiencing Cajun food for the first time; Susie and Jamie have set off for their final destination, Miami, FL. Before we said goodbye, we tested their solar equipment, wired in a new thin film Uni-Solar panel to their batteries, filled them up with king cake, coffee, hugs, well wishes and some supplies for the road. We’ll miss them and we wish them a safe journey home. Follow SolarCyclists along their jouney on their blog.
