FOGBEE Spirit.

. . In September 1989, about a month after Roscoe Phillips and Ann Kimball said "I do" at a church in Germantown, they went on a honeymoon most newlyweds wouldn't consider, much less accomplish.
They biked from Johnson City to Tims Ford State Park in Winchester, Tenn., in the annual Bicycle Ride Across Tennessee organized by the Tennessee State Parks Department. It took them seven days to cover more than 460 miles -- the route was indirect -- and they had to cope with rain from Hurricane Hugo practically all the way.
