Martin Krieg's X/C Ride for bike advocacy needs help!

Martin Kreig (of bikeroute.com) is going to ride a one of a kind Pennyfarthing big wheel bike 4017 miles across the US. Along the way, he'll be visiting 25 mayors in 25 cities to promote a national bikeway. He leaves from San Francisco and enters Immigrant Pass next Monday, May 11.

and ABC News story on him that ran on May 1st at

http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?sec...ula&id=6790917

It's quite a trip and story. However, due to the economy, he just lost his major sponsor and is working on a shoestring.

He was able to round up an RV to use as a SAG support, but he needs a driver and a videographer to chronicle the journey.

Can you help him? Do you know anyone that would like a BIG adventure?

Martin can be reached at Hiwheeler@gmail.com or in Palo Alto at 415-240-4712. c 415 - 606-5043
