On this day: July 22, 1970

Three young men reached Alaska on bicycles 24 days after they left the Tri-Cities on their adventure. Norman Pettit, 22 and Gary Alexander, 16, both of Kennewick, two of the travelers, sent a telegram to Pettit's mother to let her know they had arrived with only one mishap, a bent bike and a few bruises.
