Signs: Savannah to Key West

ByLaura Madeline Wiseman

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Signs: Savannah to Key West documents my 800-mile, 13-day bicycle ride in 2018-2019. It starts fifty miles outside Savannah, Georgia, and follows the Atlantic coastline to Key West, Florida. The trip culminates in Niceville to visit my grandpa, a military veteran and engineer born in 1924. I've ridden across the country twice. In 2017, I bicycled the Trans America Bicycle Trail from Astoria, Oregon, to Yorktown, Virginia. In 2018, I bicycled a northern route from Anacortes, Washington, to Bar Harbor, Maine. Between those cross-country rides, I followed the Mississippi and other rivers from Muscatine, Iowa, to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I bicycled the Route 66 Bicycle trail from Chicago to Los Angeles. I have participated in organized rides such as RAGBRAI, GOBA, and Tour de Nebraska. I plan logistics, journal, log data, and write on such journeys. My bicycle journeys became the books Great River Legs, What a Bicycle Can Carry, A Bicycle’s Echo, Velocipede, and Safety Measures. Often, the books focus on assignments I give myself. On my first cross-country adventure, I sought to find something abandoned on the road each day. These treasures tell the story of the journey. For Signs, I photographed signs while I pedaled. The signs focus and structure the story’s narrative.
