OT But interesting - Clydes helping a skinny guy bike to DC
A fellow Bike Forums poster is riding from Phoenix, AZ to DC for the Presidential swearing-in next month. While he's not a Clydesdale, a number of Clydes are helping him, and in at least one case planning on meeting him.
Ryan, the young rider in question, didn't make a good impression on many folks in the Touring Forum at first. Between his political views, which give new meaning to the phrase "on the left", and some of the approaches he took to planning the ride, he alienated a few folks. But the road and the essential goodness of humanity seems to have mellowed him. I've spoken twice with him on the road, and posted updates to a thread in the Touring forum.
Do any Clydes and Athenas want to ride with him at some point in his trip? We can show him we have big hearts as well as big bodies.
Ryan left El Paso, TX, this morning, and he's planning on reaching Austin by this weekend.
