In the meanwhile, my dear readers, perhaps you will enjoy a little pre-trip Q&A with the riders of Team Sierra-Cascades.
What bike will you be riding?
Alex: My new Surly Disc Trucker.
Sarah: My beloved Surly Long Haul Trucker. She's one helluva great bike -- love her like crazy.
Does your bike have a name? If so, what is it?
Alex: The bike does not have a name at this time. I am a believer in letting the bikes name themselves. I expect that at some point the name will reveal itself.
Sarah: Why surely. It's Shirley the Surly.
