What: The family is safely home again after 14 months and 8,700 miles on the road. The trip attracted national media, including the Today Show. Morn Tanya has details and pictures posted at Quotable: Dad Rick said, "We rode into Calgary from the south on a sunny day with wind at our back. It was an incredible feel- ing to ride right back to our point of departure after 14 months on the road. Words cannot describe the feeling." What's next: The boys -- Sampson, Markos and Tam -- are al- ready talking about a South America adventure. It's at least four to five years away, said Rick, but may become a reality. The idea so far would be to work/go to school in a South Ameri- can country for a year and then pedal South America for a year. Rick is planning a bicycle trip to Argentina for adults next spring as a fundraiser for his bicycle charity, Two Wheel View ( WE HAVE LOTS OF WICKED FRAMES!
