Medina County Residents Mike and Nancy Fortney have bicycle toured through parts of the United States, Greece, Albania, Macedonia, the Czech Republic, Austria, Cambodia, Italy, and Norway. In the spring of 2019, they decided to travel deeper into their own country, and set out on an unsupported 3,000-mile journey across the southern United States. They put their wheels in the Atlantic Ocean in Jacksonville Florida on March 29th, and arrived at the Pacific Ocean in San Diego, California on June 9th.
