America reCycled hits the road
This is Noah Hussin from America reCycled. We're two bicyclists/storytellers crossing the country on bikes we built at the Recyclery, a bike coop in Asheville, NC. As we ride west, we're documenting efforts to rebuild local culture, community, and economy through short film, photography, music, and writing. We've just started the trip, but have a few stories posted. One explores the bike cooperative where we built our bikes.
Here is the link to the bike coop story: http://www.americarecycled.org/?p=293
We tried to capture the magic that happens at bicycle cooperatives, and I figured that forum would be a great place to get honest feedback about how we're doing so far. Don't hesitate to comment and criticize.
We really want to get this out to cyclists everywhere, so if you have a few minutes, we'd love you to look at what we're doing. If you like what you see, it'd be great if you'd pass it on to some friends. The website features a map that charts our route, and nodes that correspond to the stories we're telling along the way.
We're also looking for places/communities to visit along the trip. It looks like we'll be heading down to New Orleans, then to Austin, and then up toward N. California. If you have any feedback or ideas for us, please shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks a lot,
