In the News

Bike49 shows up in the news from time to time. If we track it down, we post it on this page.

Our goal is to promote healthy lifestyles for a healthy planet, as well as showcase the practicality and fun of bicycle travel. Thus, we welcome interviews. We would be happy to set up interviews live or via email, Skype, or telephone. To set something up, email us at bike49 at gmail dot com.
