Gary Kinst will give a presentation tomorrow night about the Lincoln Highway, particularly the original 1913 route from Sacramento to San Francisco, California. The Lincoln Highway: Main Street Across America will be given Tuesday, Feb. 2, 7:00 p.m. at the Livermore Public Library in Livermore, CA. Borrowing its title from Drake Hokanson’s landmark book about the road, the talk will include both present-day and vintage photos. Kinst is the editor of the Lincoln Highway Association California Chapter’s newsletter The Traveler, and is a member of the Livermore Heritage Guild and Tracy Westside Pioneers.
Another treat is in store at the Livermore Library two weeks later when Bill Roe presents The Lincoln Highway by Bicycle on Feb. 23, 7:00p.m. In 1999, Roe took two months to bike the Linoln Highway, some 3,000 miles through 13 states. Bill will share his trials, tribulations and triumphs as he climbs the Sierras, battles the elements, and encounters locals along the way.
