Adventure Cycling In the Wild West

Adventure Cycling In the Wild West

It’s 120 degrees in the shade as Clarence Darling, 19 and Claude Murphey, 20, cyclists from Jackson, Michigan rest at a Colorado telegraph station in the Green Desert near the Utah border. At only 2 months into a fifteen month, 13,500 mile bike tour and with only 2 cents left in their pockets they are not feeling optimistic. The year is 1904.
