Jane, MO, woman begins cross country tour

According to an article in today's Joplin Globe:
[Becky] Hettinger, 53, leaves Monday for a two-month biking tour that will take her across the southern tier of the United States. The tour is sponsored by a company called Womantours, which offers "inn-to-inn road bike tours especially for women," according to the company's Web site www.womantours.com.

"It's better than going to the gym," Hettinger said. "I don't like to be inside, I feel like I'm restricted. I like to be outside and get out in the fresh air and there are no bicycle clubs in Joplin or around here, so this is the next best thing."
If you have gone--or are planning--a cross-state, cross-country, or cross-anything-interesting bicycle tour, MoBikeFed Cycling Tips & Stories would love to hear about it.
