TransAmerica Bicycle Trail
I just learned about the coolest bike trip the other day. In the 1970s, some adventurers set out to do an 18,000-mile bike ride from Anchorage, Alaska all the way down to the southern tip of South America. Along their travels, Lys Burden had the brilliant idea of creating a celebratory ride across the United states to honor the 1976 Bicentennial starting from Reedsport, Oregon and ending in Yorktown, Virginia. In summer of 1976, over 4,000 people participated in this Bikecentennial across the U.S.
