They’re not exactly sure where the idea came from, maybe from a documentary, maybe from a few other bike marathons, but Texas State Physical Therapy junior Julie and Education senior Matt Swallow are about to make the journey. A 2,000 mile journey. From Canada to the border of Mexico.
Doesn’t sound interesting?
Well, they’re going to do it on their bikes. With their dog Jet in tow. Though Julie was wary at first of bringing Jet along, she decided it would be okay as long as Matt was responsible for carrying him. So, Jet will see the west coast from a dog trailer tied behind Matt’s bike.
