Coast to Coast USA Bike Trip Newspaper Archives…

when anthony and i did our coast to coast usa bicycle ride (miami beach to santa barbara) in 1993, we appeared in a few local newspapers along the way.
i recently stumbled across the deteriorating papers and decided to archive them digitally as pdfs…
it is funny to note that in each article, the reporter embellished our words and in some cases (de)colloquialized our responses to questions.
here are the PDFs:
Dixie County Advocate, Cross City, Florida
Donalsonville News, Donalsonville, Georgia
Paris News, Paris, Texas
Whitesboro News, Whitesboro, Texas
The Channels, Santa Barbara, California
The postcard we sent to people we’d met along the way…
