Alice Honeywell is a retired editor who lives with her husband, Booth, in Madison, Wisconsin. A long-distance bicycle tourist, Honeywell has participated in and led week-long tours for the Sierra Club’s National Outings program and other groups since 1982. In retirement, with the support and encouragement of her family and friends, she was able to live her life-long dream of pedaling across America.
Since completing the BIG trip, she has developed a free-lance career teaching writing workshops, primarily to government and nonprofit groups. She also volunteers for her church and other nonprofits, and she remains a member of Dane County’s Bombay Bicycle Club as she continues to pedal the paved rural roads of dairyland in southern Wisconsin. She is always planning the next adventure, hoping that her grandchildren will be soon able to join her. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bobbi Montgomery is an award-winning English teacher who retired just in time to begin pedaling across America. Also a runner and triathlete, Montgomery came to love bicycle touring when she joined Honeywell and others on a Nova Scotia tour in 1987. Other group trips whetted her appetite to pedal greater distances, so when she and Honeywell discovered their similar retirement dates, her decision was easy. Cheered on by her partner, Bob, her children, grandchildren, and friends in Ohio, she joined Honeywell in Oregon for their three-month adventure on bicycles.
Back at home, she continues to ride the hills of southern Ohio with her local bicycle club, Gears4Beers.Now she consults for an education publisher and works with student teachers in southwest Ohio. She also volunteers in her community and is a board member of the HeartStone Foundation, a non-profit that helps those with life-threatening illnesses pay their medical bills.
