Carmen Sandiego Wiki

Episode 62 is the sixty-second episode of the first season of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?


Baron Wasteland steals the two-wheel bicycle from Scotland in the year 1839.

While attempting to get to the time of the crime, Kevin and the time pilots end up in the 1840s. After a Data Boost, they meet two African-American sisters from the year 1892 when women rode bicycles while wearing bloomers, but they miss their target and land in 1896 because the Baron has zapped their fact fuel.

In 1896, the Baron gives the time pilots clues directing them to China in 1949, when Mao Zedong encouraged bike travel after the Communist Revolution and where the time pilots do Global Pursuit.

After getting a message from the Time Net Street Entertainers, the time pilots follow the Baron to California in 1976, when mountain bikes were introduced, and retrieve the bicycle.

Nicky captures Baron Wasteland, but Carmen escapes due to Nicky's slow speed coupled with missing two questions.
