Pedal power: Cyclists travel 15,000 miles for a good cause
It’s July 26 in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, and Nate Prescott and Mark Jirik have a lot of work ahead of them. They’re nearly 4,000 miles from home—but a staggering 15,000 miles from their final destination, in Ushuaia, Argentina. On four wheels, the trek down the Pan-American Highway, a stretch of road from the Arctic Circle to the southern tip of South America, would seem long—but on two, it’s nearly endless.
