Bicycle Ride Around the World 1000 pc Puzzle
Follow the route the daring Thomas Stevens took on his “Bicycle Ride Around the World” in this puzzle map that spans the globe!
No one had traveled across the country, let alone across the world, by bicycle until Thomas Stevens began his journey! He left San Francisco on April 22, 1884 and rode (and walked 1/3 of the way) 3,700 miles on wagon trails, railways and roads, reaching Boston 104 days later. He took a ship to Liverpool and rode across Europe, the Middle East and Asia to end his journey in Japan. A boat ride returned him to San Francisco — a total of 13,500 miles! A great gift for any history or bicycle buff!
