Across Asia on a Bicycle The Journey of Two American Students from Constantinople to Peking Thomas Gaskell Allen Beginning in June, 1890, two young American students made a bicycle journey around the world--so far as they could on land--and were back in New York, whence they had sailed for Liverpool to begin their wheeling in just under three years.
