The Pedalshift Project 192: Bicycle Tour Route Full House

The month of MJ concludes like all good trilogies must… with a bang! No Ewoks in part three, but rather a game of Pedalshift Bicycle Tour Route Poker! Each of us chooses five bike tour routes for our “hand,” and then you get to choose who collected the best set.

Bicycle Tour Route Full House with MJ

Rules in a nutshell… each person picks once per round. We pick a “card” representing a bike touring route until we end up with a full house hand of 5 touring routes – 3 Adventure Cycling Association  routes and 2 wild cards, and you get to decide who drew the better hand.

Our Full House Hands

TYPE James Tim
ACA Great Divide Pacific Coast
ACA ID Hot Springs TransAm
ACA WA Parks Lewis & Clark
Wildcard Caraterra Estral Paris to Brussels
Wildcard PanAmerican Hwy GAP/CO
Your vote

You have the rest of January eastern time to vote… who has the better tour route hand?

Coming up on the Pedalshift Project

My next bike tour, the Kessel Run in central FL, gets a preview episode the week after! Super stoked about riding in Florida again so stay tuned!

You’ve been hearing about Jason Kent and his music for many fine episodes. Sunfields’ latest album may be their best yet. Go get it.
