Bicycle Guide to the Lewis & Clark Trail

About the Author

After careers in the computer industry and teaching high school math, Tod Rodger switched in his mid-50s to full time riding and writing. He has ridden over 200,000 miles and led a dozen 1,000–2,000 mile tours for both high school students and adults. As a very experienced bicycle tourer—both camping and staying in B&Bs and motels — he understands what information bicycle tourers want and need.

After refreshing ourselves we proceeded on to the top of the dividing ridge from which I discovered immence ranges of high mountains still to the West of us with their tops partially covered with snow.”
