Join Shawn and Randy as they bike-pack across Washington State on the John Wayne Pioneer Trail, the nations longest Rails to Trails conversion. Places to have adventures like this are getting rarer to find and their existence isn't guaranteed.
Riding the John Wayne Trail was shot as it happened over a 5 days in October 2015. Shawn and Randy covered about 60-80 miles per day and endured rain, freezing cold, pre-dawn starts, and 10 hour days in the saddle. Despite being hounded all day by Chris (who constantly leapfrogged them up the trail in his truck to get shots of them riding by), they were always cheerful and optimistic. Even on the final day, when they estimated they only had 50 miles to go (which actually was closer to 90 miles) they had a great sense of humor about the entire endeavor. Shawn and Randy really appreciate how fortunate they were to be riding such an amazing trail. Space to have adventures like the John Wayne Pioneer Trail are rare, and it's important to keep places like this open to the public, because "once it's gone, we'll never get it back..."
