Lafayette resident Len Holmes is fulfilling a dream he’s been harboring for three decades: biking across the country.
The 65 year old left Thursday morning for his solo cross-country journey, with 35 pounds of camping gear and supplies strapped to his bicycle. He plans to stop along the way to check out the sights and visit friends. He’ll arrive on the East Coast in September.
He’ll stop off at public libraries along the way and post updates, musings and photos to his online journal. You can check out his online journal here.
