Ocean to Ocean on Two Wheels

Two women traveling by themselves across the U.S. on bicycles and camping along the way: This is the 90's version of the way entre into the pre and post baby-boomer years should be -- adventure, new experiences, and being in the physical and mental condition to make a fantasy a reality. Their adventure is over now. It took them a little under two months to travel 2724 miles from California to Florida. Relive their experiences with these journal entries and photos from the road.
