New Year, New Book: “Bicycling Historic Route 66” (or something like that)
Over the years, we have received wonderful feedback about the bicycling adventures we have shared. From shorter coffee shop and brewery rides to our epic, “once-in-a-lifetime,” unsupported cross-country adventures on our bicycle built for two, they all seem to strike a chord. We couldn’t be happier to share them.
From 2014-2016, we crossed the USA unsupported on our tandem bicycle three times and logged over 10,000 miles of unforgettable adventures.
Our first book, “Coast to Coast on a Tandem: Our Adventure Crossing the USA on a Bicycle Built for Two,” chronicles our cross-country adventure along the Northern Tier of the United States (4,372 miles, 72 days). Our upcoming book will recount our third trip, this time along none other than Historic Route 66.
While we work on the new book, we would like to invite you to join us on another adventure, our book writing adventure. For the next several months we will post weekly on this blog about our progress and experiences, just like we do on our bicycle trips. Our first book writing experience was an incredible journey and we expect this to be no less exciting, painful, frustrating, enlightening… you get the idea.
Stay tuned and let’s all get our kicks on Route 66!

Historic Route 66 was commissioned in November 1926, although signs were not erected until the following year. The road was originally slated to be U.S. 60, but it was changed to 66 as it did not run coast to coast.
