Today we take mobility for granted. When technical writer Steve Roberts decided to be a “high tech nomad” in the 1980s, it was a radical dream. Eventually his writings about the journey overtook his day job. He pedaled over 17,000 miles.

Shown here is Roberts with the second of his three bikes, a heavily rebuilt version of his original recumbent bicycle. Winnebiko II had four onboard computers, and the first of his systems for typing while riding.
