A month ago, in late June, some 30 bicyclists dipped their wheels in the Pacific Ocean at Astoria, Oregon.

Just like the rest of their fellow riders, Kiel native Dennis Meyer and his wife, Mary, we embarking on the journey of a lifetime. Their objective was to put those same wheels in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean upon the completion of a 50-day, 3,700 mile bike trip across the United States.

For the Meyers, and their counterparts, this bucket-list journey would include 45 days of riding at an average of about 80 miles a day. Mountain ranges, Badlands, farm country and wide open spaces would greet the riders along the way. 

For the Meyers, however, Wisconsin’s roadways would hold a couple of special opportunities.
