A cross-country bike trip from Boston to California is the perfect time for Penny to get her life under control. Along the way her fellow bikers and the people she meets offer her a chance to gain clarity and direction-- something Penny desperately needs.

BIKE AMERICA is presented through special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC 

All performances are FREE to the public.

This Summer Circle production is indebted to generous support from MSU Bikes and Lansing Bike Party.
