The cyclists are expected to arrive in Philly sometime this afternoon or evening and depart on Wed Aug 11th. Barbara & Elliott Waters will provide them a place to sleep Tuesday evening, plus dinner & breakfast on Wednesday.
Philly Electric Wheels (PHEW!) has offered to check their bikes on Wednesday morning before they take to the road again.
Five of them are rising sophomores and athletes at Stanford University, one is a rising senior at the University of Wyoming and one is a recent graduate from Illinois Wesleyan University. The riders will be biking from Palo Alto to Boston over the course of 67 days, following a Northern route, and they are all excited to meet people around the country and complete the physical challenge of a lifetime.
