Melissa is an occupational therapy assistant from Coshocton, Ohio. In her spare time, she enjoys painting, hosting parties, and spoiling her grandchildren. She likes driving her Camaro, and if you ask how old she is, she’ll say “39 and holding.”
Megan is a 24 year old writer, editor, and hotel front desk girl living in Denver, Colorado. She enjoys hiking, snowboarding, and cooking. She desperately wants a dog, but doesn’t think she’s responsible enough yet.
In the summer of 2014, Melissa and Megan are going to bike the Pacific Coast.
Why do they want to bike 1800 miles? Well, Megan thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine in 2012. She’s tired of walking now, so she thought riding a bike might make a nice change of pace. Melissa hiked 80 miles of the Appalachian Trail with Megan, and she really enjoyed it, but she thought she might like to shower more often.
