Former U.S. Marine Tim Tuomey started a test run Monday for his upcoming cross-country bicycle trip.
Tuomey has enlisted two friends on a bike and in a follow car on the 132-mile stretch from Lee Vining to Tonopah, Nev.
“It’s a really good test piece,” the 45-year-old said Friday from his Mi-Wuk Village home.
Tuomey and his wife, Keverne, split their time between the mountains and San Francisco, where Keverne owns an art shop.
