Would you believe that a magazine article started the whole thing? After reading that article, Jake got excited and came up with his "Wild Hair". When he told his wife Kris about it, she wondered if he had lost his mind. She thought that his idea of riding their bicycles across the country was simply absurd. After all, they both had good jobs to think about, and they had a hard time just riding across town. But Kris finally changed her mind, and so began their amazing odyssey.
Along the Way tells the story of their three month journey from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. It also tells about their year of training and preparations, during which they discovered recumbent bicycles. You've probably seen them, those long, low, sit down bikes that caused a stir wherever Kris and Jake went. Along the Way also tells about their unusual experiences, the interesting people they met, and some amazing places they visited.
Join them as they ride over the river and through the woods, over the mountains and across the plains, to see this country as few others have ever had the chance to do.
