Starting a self-supported bike ride from Duluth to the East Coast, this Summer!

Do you know or have you hosted this user?

My name is Steve but I go by the name "Batch" since it is part of my last name.

I am starting up a bike trip from Duluth to New York, and will support myself in my RV by doing "out and backs" or loops each day. My plan is to follow the Lakes on the US side and eventually make it to the East Coast. I am in no hurry and I don't have a final destination, other than the fact that I need to be in Calif by April 2021.

Along with biking, I hope to paddleboard and surf wherever I can find clear water and waves.

I truly appreciate you opening up your land to park on! That is awesome of you and I am available to help out if you need any manual labor like chopping some wood, or digging a trench.

Great BD traveler. Didn't have a chance to chat at length, however, enjoyed learning about his cycling adventures and his plans going forward. Glad he was able to check out the sites around our area. Wishing him continued safe travels, and recommend him to future future BD hosts.

Great guest on an exciting adventure!

We really enjoyed having scottbatch stay with us for a few days in RI. He is on an amazing cross country bike adventure and it was great to chat with him and hear about his trip.
He was the perfect guest…quiet, considerate, and just a nice guy to hang out with. He was even helpful to another boondocker on our property who needed some emergency bike maintenance.
We’d be happy to host scottbatch again anytime!

Very kind, personable, and laid back

Hosting him was a pleasure! He wasn’t even fully parked and offered to help me cut down some tree branches I’ve been wanting to cut down but couldn’t because of being unsteady on a ladder. He was very clean and polite and thankful for a safe place to park. He communicated quickly and let me know when he was coming and going. I look forward to seeing more of him and hearing of his adventures!

Enjoyable & Motivated Guest!

I really enjoyed ScottBatch's visit. He is a thoughtful, motivated, and man of many talents. I enjoyed our conversations and found we had some experiences in common. I really admired his motivation to get out and experience our part of Florida and all it has to offer. He was a very respectful guest and welcome back anytime,

great guest

I hosted ScottBatch for one night and he was just as pleasant as he can be. Unfortunately his vehicle was a little too tall and couldn't stay additional days but highly recommend him for slightly larger spots than I have.
