When Christopher Briscoe and his son, Quincy, rode their bikes along historic Route 66 from Santa Monica to Chicago, majestic beauty and quirky characters became regular features of their daily routine. It was 58 days and 2,700 miles of exhaustion and magic, through sometimes overwhelming heat or driving rain. Along the way, they discover that the road between them is the life path that connects them. Their journey is captured in photographs and stories that bring to life their adventures and heartfelt camaraderie.
