WE BIKE, etc. Route 66 Adventure
Solo tandem bicyclists, Peter and Tracy Flucke of WE BIKE, etc., LLC, plan to continue their bicycle trips in 2016 with their WE BIKE, etc. Route 66 Bicycle Adventure, beginning June 3rd. After successfully bicycling 4,362.5 miles west to east in 2014 and 3,052 mile north to south across the country in 2015, (WE BIKE Across America Blog) the couple is excited to begin their next adventure.
The Fluckes will bicycle the classic “American road trip,” Route 66; stretching 2,448 miles from Chicago to Los Angeles. Built in 1926, Route 66, also known as the “Main Street of America” or “The Mother Road,” was decommissioned in 1985 after interstates took over. However, several nonprofits have worked to preserve this slice of “America” and each year many visitors travel the historic route by automobile and bicycle.
