Groovy Baby, Yah! - Great America Bicycle Tour 1975

In 1975, JC Penney hired 12 college students to ride their bikes from NYC to San Francisco. They were promoting their new disc brake equipped bikes OEM'd from Huffy Manufacturing. As you will see, they thought people rode bikes in tennis gear. The music is classic. 

It was a great summer, even with the mandatory "Safety skits" performed at various JC Penney shopping malls.

What a hoot! I love it.
Did you notice the sign on their sag RV: "Don't come a knocking when the RV is rocking!"
