What: – Local Couple to Bicycle Mississippi River Corridor

Date: August 24, 2015                                                     

Solo tandem bicyclists, Peter and Tracy Flucke of WE BIKE, etc., LLC, will begin their Mississippi River trip, crossing the United States from north to south, on September 4, 2015.  After successfully bicycling 4,362.5 miles across the country in 2014 and the Fox – Wisconsin Heritage Parkway in June of 2015 (600 miles) (WE BIKE Across America Blog), the couple is excited to start their next adventure.

The Fluckes will be bicycling from Green Bay, WI to International Falls, MN (Canadian Border) to Itasca State Park, MN then along the Mississippi River to New Orleans, Louisiana and the Gulf of Mexico. The trip will cover approximately 3,500 miles. This adventure will allow the Fluckes to explore the natural beauty of the Mississippi River and cross paths with the Fox – Wisconsin Heritage Parkway route, in Prairie du Chien, as well as their 2014 cross country route, in Stillwater, MN.

On their 2014 cross country trip the Fluckes had almost 6000 people following them on social media.

This trip will feature two exciting new twists. A local school district is adding the adventure to their classroom curriculum. Teachers and students will be able to follow the trip thru social media and even have the ability to SKYPE or talk directly with the Fluckes while on route.

Also new on this trip is the addition of a GPS/Cellular/Bluetooth tracking device provided by From The Finish Line (www.fromthefinishline.com). This device will allow anyone to follow the Flucke’s progress, in real time, on any internet-enabled device.
