Keys to Freeze: Pedaling 9,000 Miles from Key West to Deadhorse, Alaska

by Steve Newborn, WUSF
A group of six 20-somethings - including three from the Tampa Bay area - decided they needed a little exercise while getting a tour of America. So they decided to hop on their bicycles and pedal across the country.

No, this isn't the typical coast-to-coast trip. They started in January in Key West - and are biking to Deadhorse, Alaska.

Nine thousand miles.

The call themselves "Keys to Freeze." They are fundraising to conserve National Parks.

They're now somewhere around Albuquerque, New Mexico. WUSF's Steve Newborn caught up with them recently after they had pedaled a mere one thousand miles to Pensacola. He talks with Rachel Burns '10 of St. Petersburg, Brady Lawrence of Raleigh, North Carolina, and Reese Wells of Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
