It is the staff (mostly volunteer) that make Bubba’s Coast 2 Coast tour an amazing experience. Most of them are couples, and except for the Wolfpack (the muscle), all have ridden their bikes across the country with Bubba – it’s a requirement! For our small (25) group of cyclists for this crossing, there are 13 staff members. We are most definitely pampered, and perhaps a bit spoiled. This staff is versatile and incredibly flexible. They wear many hats during the trip. They share their experiences, they encourage us, they drive SAG, they do our laundry…we love them!
Snowflake from Pittsburgh.
She is the advance person at each overnight location and manages the Wolfpack. She is the only person (other than Bubba) who has been on every C2C tour, riding in the first one (in 2010), and working every one since then.
Anne and Serge, our culinary champions.
They keep everyone happy with their incredible food. You can read our ode to them here.
The Wolfpack: Alex, Drew, and Tyler.
The pack sets up and breaks down each location. They pitch our tents and blow up the air mattresses as well as schlepping our luggage. They make our lives so easy on this trip.
AND BUBBA…his role cannot be quantified or underestimated. He is the man who makes everything work. His motto, “reconnect and reconfirm”, which means we see him on the phone all of the time.
He is a man who clearly loves what he is doing.
Tomorrow: Nine rides left. Our final push to the Atlantic begins with a ferry ride.
