Shadow of a Wheel

Paul Bonesteel

In the summer of 1982, 31 teenagers from North Carolina attempted a daunting coast-to-coast 3,600-mile bicycle journey across the U.S. These “Spokesmen of America” riders set out to raise money and awareness for multiple sclerosis and experienced a coming-of-age summer filled with intense challenges, humor, mishaps, personal discovery, and tragedy. An ensemble cast tells this poignant and powerful story, encapsulating the era, the adventure, and life itself.
