The following item appeared in the New York Times:

Headline: "Comings & Goings"
By HILARY HOWARD
Published: March 18, 2007

The lyrics of 'Follow the Drinking Gourd' supposedly guided 19th-century American slaves north toward freedom (the gourd apparently being the Big Dipper). More recently, these lyrics guided the creation of a 2,058-mile-long simulation of an Underground Railroad route for 21st-century cyclists. The Underground Railroad Bicycle Route -- a brainchild of the Adventure Cycling Association and the Center for Minority Health in Pittsburgh --runs from Mobile, Ala., to Georgian Bay on Lake Huron, passing through river valleys, wildlife refuges and small towns. A guided tour of the entire route is scheduled to start April 14. The 48-day journey costs $2,649, with stays mainly in campsites, and includes maps and groceries (meals are prepared by participants, who will rotate responsibilities). On July 30, there will be a seven-day guided ride ending at the 145th Emancipation Celebration in Owen Sound, Ontario. The fee is $699 and includes luggage transport and catered meals. Cyclists who want to tour the route on their own can buy maps at www.adventurecycling.org/ugrr.
