Across the Country on a Tandem Bike

In 1976 and 1979, Joe Breeze and Otis Guy attempted to breakĀ the Guinness World RecordĀ for crossing the continental United States by bicycle (held by a different person in each respective year). Although they were gunning for the record for a single cyclist, the pair rode a tandem bike.

While neither attempt for the record panned out for Breeze and Guy, other cyclists were inspired to set new records. The attempts also somewhat served the team's goal of promoting cycling as a fun, healthy, and exciting sport as well as showed what tandems are capable of.
