More Wheels North History

We are very fortunate to have the support of Evelyn McDaniel Gibb, author of "Two Wheels North," as we plan for our centennial commemoration of the original ride.  Evelyn has been very generous with her time, but she has outdone herself now.

Evelyn has loaned us her entire collection of the postcards sent back to Santa Rosa by Vic McDaniel, her father and one of the heroes of Two Wheels North.  What an incredible piece of cycling history!

We'll be scanning all of the postcards (some of which have never been published) and posting them at Wheels North.  Evelyn also sent copies of a number of maps and articles that she used in the writing of Two Wheels North, and we'll be posting those as well.

Thank you, Evelyn!

Nice job Eric! I just bought 3 copies of the books to be part of a display at a few of the local LBS. YET, there is just so much that can be done with that material you are getting to scan in!!! Very Nice!
