Lost on Bikes

As a lot of you may know on the last week of my trip while riding on the C&O trail right outside of harpers ferry i was lucky enough to meet Felix and Jeff of Lost on Bikes . We spent the last week of my trip and the first week of their trip together. They left Pittsburgh Pa a little over a month ago and have been ripping up the road they are currently in Yellowstone, you can follow their trip by visiting www.lostonbikes.com and if your on IG #lostonbikes . Its truly amazing what these guys are doing and it fully motivates me to go on another long trip soon. Thanks guys let the wind be at your back  and keep the rubber side down!
