Bike Across US
Two bicyclists paused to refuel with coffee at a local gas station Thursday as they pedal their way across America. Lee “Shiloh” Pickering, 61, and his wife, Ruthie Pickering, 33, of Portland, Oregon, will likely be in Connecticut May 1 after starting their travels in their hometown Oct. 27, 2010. “We ride all over for freedom. People are locked up in their jobs and in their lives,” said Shiloh, a former firefighter.
