Tulsan's Tony Gehres, 59, and Bob McCoy, 74, decided to ride bicycles from San Diego, California, to St. Augustine, Florida. "A thin place," Gehres said, "is any place where you can shed all but the final, thin layer between your temporal world and the divine. Cycling is a way to get there— alone in thought, pedaling against that membrane, stretching it thin."
Join Tony Gehres and Bob McCoy on a trip across the southern US accomplished in three stages.
The first leg was self-contained, meaning they had no support driver to carry supplies or scout ahead for meals and accommodations.
The second leg, from El Paso to the Mississippi River crossing, north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, took three weeks and covered 1,080 miles. They reached the river on March 22, 2017.
the final 850-mile leg of the journey, from the Mississippi River to St. Augustine, Florida, was completed in the spring of 2018.
