Cycling from Sea to Shining Sea

  • Blacksburg Library 200 Miller Street Blacksburg, VA (map)

Few people have seen every mile that makes up a cross-continental trip across the United States—fewer still have accomplished it on a bike. Kris and Bob Peckman will share their experience of biking across North America on March 13 at the Blacksburg Library in Blacksburg, Va.

Beginning in Anacortes, Wash., Kris and Bob Peckman pedaled 4,488-miles to Bar Harbor, Maine in 91 days. The avid hikers and cyclists will present photos and stories from the cross-country trip and share their road-tested tips on distance riding, equipment and planning.

“Cycling is a way to see things up close and notice what would be totally missed driving by”, said Mr. Peckman. The general public is invited to hear the pair reflect on many joys and challenges of seeing America, one mile at a time.

The program will begin promptly at 7pm.
