Bikers Follow the Underground Railroad Route to Canada

Mary and Bob Coffey, along with Sam Haller,  came through Amory last week on an Underground Railroad Bike Tour stretching from Mobile, Ala. to Canada. This is not the first cross-country trip for the adventurers who are doing the tour through Adventure Cycling, a non-profit group.

“We do get on some difficult roads, but we like to ride and stay fit,” said Mary who, along with husband Bob, is about to turn 70.

The crew professed an enjoyment of meeting new people and getting an impression of the states as some of the reasons trips like this are so enjoyable.

The tour, which began March 1, will end back in the states on June 1.bikers
