Whilst there is a photography tradition of documenting the American road trip, Loughlin felt that traveling by bike would expose him to opportunities and encounters that could be overlooked if travelled by car or bus. Taking a slower pace and being on his own speed allowed Loughlin, as an observer passing through small American towns, to see the beauty in the banality of everyday life.
I feel the decision to cycle not only gave me a stronger connection the landscape but also to the people I met along the way.
