Things Are Moving! Firsts fly by.
Now that 3/4ths of the bike49 crew are unemployed college graduates, the planning of bike49 has launched into full effect. Whoo Hooo! When we conceived this idea almost two years ago, the realities of a 14 month, 15,000 mile bicycle journey were far off. We are beginning to realize how big/amazing/daunting this bicycle ride is going to be, and we couldn’t be more excited!
We are less than 4 MONTHS away from the grand kick off and there is so much to do. Bike49’s big goal right now is to get the word out and get people excited about bicycling. To all who are reading this now: tell everyone you know about bike49. Our website is now fully functional and we have a Facebook page and an email list. We would love to hear from you as well. Tell us what you think of bike49; let us know if we can crash on your couch when we roll through; and if you know of any teachers and classes we can present to. Bike49 is going to be awesome and we want as many people as possible to be involved in it. Thanks to everyone that has made bike49’s first successes great. Keep on riding.
