The Path Less Pedaled is an exploration of what it means to live outside the lines. In March 2009, Laura Crawford and Russ Roca made the decision to drop out of the status quo and find others around the world who have done the same.

Crawford and Roca will present a look at what they've found on their journey on Tuesday, May 18, at 6:30 pm at Carlyle Auditorium (first floor Room 114) of Mickle Hall on Centenary campus. It is a program presented by the Bayou Chapter of the Ozark Society, says Maurice Loridans.

Paring down their lives to just what will fit on two bicycles, Laura and Russ embarked on an extended bike tour throughout the US and beyond – with the goal of connecting with and collecting the stories of people who followed a calling to live their lives in unique ways, while revitalizing the model of the traveling artisan and inspiring others to travel by bicycle.

Through photos, interviews, presentations, and an extensive web presence, Laura (an art jewelry maker) and Russ (a photographer) are compiling examples of lives less ordinary and sharing their experiences with the world.
