For Stéphane Cazotte, crossing the USA is a childhood dream that he will realize thanks to his taste for travel made possible because shared with his wife. It will also materialize thanks to Eric, his friend, who got involved in this project, following a cycle mechanic training because the objective of the two friends is to be as independent as possible.
The project will therefore consist of crossing the United States of America, diagonally, from the east coast (Boston) to the south coast (San Diego, on the Mexican border) crossing 15 states either by cutting as short as possible, on the paper, about 5,100 km. On the strength of his previous experiences, Stéphane has set up stages of 130 km on average, with 6 days of rest drowned in the middle of the 38 stages required.
Conscious but determined
“There will be adjustments to be made like, in Arizona where it will be very hot, we will be driving at night. On the map the road is three quarters flat but there is also Vermont and the Rockies in California… We will also have to manage the pain in our body, friction, we are not professionals”, confide the two friends.
We feel the determination of these two boys to take up this challenge which will surely not be the last.
