Get Involved

We admit biking around the country is not for everyone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be involved. Here are a few ways you can support our mission:

Last stop before San Fran

Ride a State – join us in your state, whether it is for a few hours or a few days.

Help us find venues- Part of our mission is to teach others about cycling. We have created a workshop, including a look at our trip (photos, stories, and more), why biking is a great way to get around, and answers to commuting and touring questions. We can customize workshops depending on the group’s age, experience, and interest. In order to do this we need audiences. Here’s how:

1. Check out our route map.
2. Do we go through your city?
3. If we do (or if we come within 100 miles), find people interested in learning more about bike touring, bike commuting, or healthy lifestyles. This could be a school, a community club, neighborhood organization, church group, you name it!
5. Let us know you are interested. We can set a date as our route gets more and more settled.
6. Bask in the glory of knowing your help makes bike49 possible.

Donate your couch- If you have room for a few bikers, let us know.
Donate money- Help us pay for food, camping, workshop supplies, and the occasional shower…
Join our mailing list or Facebook – Learn about where we are and what we are doing. Become a fan of Bike49 on Facebook.

Ride your bike!- Get involved, even if you can’t join us. Sweat a little, save some money, breath some cleaner air, enjoy the exercise, and work it. Try commuting or exploring your country by bike.

Thank you America!
