A Vintage Bicycle Tour
September 21, 2011 8:50 AM Subscribe
I ran across a travelogue a while back of two young women going on a long bicycle tour in the Eastern U.S. in the 1930s or 1940s. I think they started from Pennsylvania or another nearby state and originally intended to go west, but ended up going south. On the return trip, I think they took a boat up the Mississippi or another major river. Does this ring a bell?

I remember that they camped out, and I think within the first day or two that they were camped out near a stream and there was a major rainstorm that evening or night that caused them to have to move quickly.
Anyway, I started reading the site, never finished it, and now I can't find it. Can you help me, hive mind?
