Trans Am Update #1

Trans Am Update #1

Greetings from Mission Control in Eugene, OR! We’ve been closely monitoring Rob and checking in with him throughout his Trans Am adventure. Here are some stats so far:

  • Rob’s covered over 1,000 miles in 3 1/2 days
  • Avg. speed to date: 16 mph



Day 1

Astoria, OR – McKenzie Bridge, OR: 270 miles

Day 2

McKenzie Bridge, OR- Baker City, OR: 305 miles

Day 3

Baker City, OR – Grangeville, ID: 243 miles

Day 4

Grangeville, ID – Hamilton, MT: 218 miles

I’ve had some quick phone chats with Rob while he’s on course.  His spirits are still high, he’s constantly hungry, and has really appreciated all of the support from everyone. We’re getting messages from all over the world cheering him on (New Zealand, England, China, Israel, U.S., Canada, and Chile just to name a few). Thanks to everyone for all their good vibes and positive thoughts — keep them coming and be sure to share those vibes to all the other riders on Trans Am.

Also want to say thank you to all the sponsors who have helped Rob on his big adventure:

DT Swiss, SRAM, Ruckus Composites, Schwalbe, USE-Exposure lights, Castelli, Silca, Kali, Arundel, Kaibab Customs, Custom Colorworks.

Shout out to Global Cycling Network for the nice coverage on their show about his bike! You can see the clip here: Rob’s TransAm Bike

That’s the up to date information I have at this point. I will post again when I have more, stay tuned.

Here’s some photos from Day 1 when Rob came through Coburg. There was a small fan club to meet and cheer him on, also when he stopped off at Angeline’s Bakery in Sisters, Or. for some amazing vegan treats, and when he made it to Montana today. There are more posted onto his Instagram and Facebook pages.

  1. Keep on trucking Rob!!! I can’t wait for a breakdown of what you were eating along the way… Being vegan on the road is a tough one! 🙂
    Best wishes from London!
