CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August I - August 7, 1997 - 25 Wandering Why,ells return to Reh0000both:00. Aug. 7 Wandering Wheels, a group of ' cyclists who this year range in age i!! , from 19 to 73, will make their fi- nal stop in a coast to coast trip in Rehoboth Beach on Thursday, Aug. 7. The trek, which began in Seattle, Wash., marks the 52nd bi- cycle crossing by the group, which started as a once-in-a-life- time summer experience for a bunch of church boys. Wandering Wheels has now become a full- blown, year-round cycling touring company. To date, over 3,000 cy- clists have crossed the United States with routes cries-crossing the United States. Routes have in- cluded Miami to Seattle, Portland, Maine to Portland, Ore., Los An- geles to New York, San Francisco to the Delaware coast and more. The Seattle, Wash. to Rehoboth Beach route being traveled this summer has remained the same for the past seven consecutive summers, fiaainly because the rid- ers and staff alike enjoy the scenery, the small towns and their inhabitants, weather conditions and road safety experienced over the past years. Geographically, the route starts in Seattle, crosses the Cascade Mountains and travels Highway 2 across Washington. Idaho comes next and with it a reminder of our American mining history. Then comes Montana, the dream state for everyone who has a wander- lust to explore mountains, wildlife and many small working commu- nities. Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota, the corn belt states of Ne- braska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, all follow in succession, f 55 Acres of Pick-Your-Own-Fruits Don't miss your chance for "Delicious" BLUEBERRIES 85/]b.

The route takes them across the Ohio River at Parkers- burg, W. Va., through tough mountain climbs (the Appalachi- ans!) that twist and turn through all of Virginia, before arriving in the nation's capital. Then comes Annapolis, Md., Bridgeville, and finally, Rehoboth Beach, which to the coast-to-coast riders is syn- onymous with Epworth United Methodist Church. For more than 30 years, the congregation at Ep- worth has hosted the Wandering Wheels at the conclusion of their 3,200-mile journey. The 36 riders participating in the 1997 crossing represent 20 different states and the country of Switzerland. There are 25 men and 11 women, with an average age of 45. Among them are teachers, col- lege students, grad students, nurs- es, a high school principal, college administrator, surgeon, radio DJ, artist, CPA, Realtor, lawyer, Su- perior Court judge, member of the U.S. Coast Guard and a retirement home administrator. There are three husband/wife teams, a fa- ther/son team and a father/daugh- ter team in the group. Although this is the first cross- ing for most of the riders, some have completed two or more tours with Wandering Wheels. The bikers will arrive in Re- hoboth Beach about noon on Aug. 7. They will congregate on the Boardwalk at Rehoboth Avenue and will be feted at an evening meal provided by Epworth United Methodist Church, after which a program will be presented in the church sanctuary.
