My name is Mark Kowalik and my friend Kristen DeMint and I are graduating from Colorado State University-Fort Collins this May. We are biking across America from Oregon to Virginia this summer to raise awareness and money for the non-profit organization Invisible Children
Invisible Children is an organization that looks to create international attention on the 23 year old civil war that has been occurring in Northern Uganda, which has displaced around 2 million Uganda people from their homes and families. The organization places an emphasis on rescuing N. Ugandan children abducted by a rebel army called Lord Resistance Army. Throughout the years this rebel army has abducted 30,000 Ugandan children that have been raped, tortured, and brainwashed to become killing machines.
The reason we are biking across America this summer is because we are looking to raise $10,000 for Invisible Children’s Schools For Schools Program. This program is the largest-scale project to date addressing the region’s need for improved learning environments and a larger investment in higher education because of the significant damages N. Uganda schools have suffered during this long war. By holistically rebuilding 10 of the most promising secondary schools in the region, Invisible Children Organization is looking beyond the temporary fix of simply putting kids in classrooms, but instead putting them in classrooms that will better prepare them for their future and the future of their country.
We have ‘Daily Blog’ page which we will be writing in daily throughout the 12 weeks it will take us to bike across the country. Also, we will be uploading photos and video onto our blog.
We are leaving on May 23rd, so we are getting very excited!

Advanced bikers won't find much for them, but beginners, riders getting started in day riding, touring, commuting or even going car-free should find a lot here.
Mission is to get people out of their cars and onto their bikes (for all the usual reasons).

Thanks for letting me move this here, Machka! I'd like to get this section rolling.
on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

I'm slowly putting content on my site mostly for family and friends for my 3 tours that are starting in the next little bit. One around the island to work out some kinks, one down to Mexico from Vancouver to work out some bigger Kinks, and then one open ended tour where I don't look back. I've sold everything but a couple boxes of books, some musical gear, and a computer - this couldn't come soon enough, I'm tired of it! http://www.tiredofit.ca
My blog is online now even though my ride across the US isn't until next year.
I am tracking everything from the decision of tour group, bike selection, training and the tide itself.

Hey everyone! I want to thank anyone who offered advice to us before our 2008 tour from Anchorage to TJ. We had a blast, and we also documented the whole journey in HD video. I've got over 30 hours of HD footage plus about 12 hours of SD footage, along with over 10,000 photos.
I've finally found the time to jump into boiling all of that footage down into short episodes! Woo hoo! You can watch the episodes as they come out in our blog at http://alaska-to-mexico.blogspot.com
I'm also writing out a more detailed account of our journey in the blog with pictures and raw videos to accompany. I have the first few days already posted. Check it out if you are interested!
For anyone interested here's a link to our crazyguy blog. We are currently touring from near Seattle to Arizona and possibly beyond. There's our 10 year old son, my wife and I. We are in Moab right now. Lots of mountain riding is behind us, with daily climbing averaging 2000-2500'.
Hi there! My name is Darren Alff and I run a website called http://www.BicycleTouringPro.com. The reason I'm writing now however is because I recently launched a new site I thought you might be interested in. The site is called 21Bikes.com and you can read all about it here: http://21bikes.com/about/
The site is very simple: You upload a photo of you and your bicycle. If it's good, we’ll post it to the site within one of our 21 bike-specific categories. Then, once the picture goes live, it gets voted on and shared by our users. You can submit a photo no matter what type of bike you ride, how old you are, or where you live in the world. The only requirement is that the photo you submit include both YOU and YOUR BICYCLE.
I just thought I'd share the site here so that if it looked like something you might be interested, you could upload a photo of you and your bicycle and pass the word along.
cycling in the redwood empire and other areas in northern california.. need to do some multi-day trips and get up north! love living in SF though.. awesome rides here.
About a year ago my girlfriend and I crossed the Atlas mountains and followed the Kasbah and gorges route. It was a wonderful trip, and I finally had the time to assemble a web about it:
Hope you find it useful
I'm back on the road again, long term for a few years, Phase 3 has me going across Canada before taking on the world http://www.tiredofit.ca
Haven't toured for a very long time since my North American Bicycle Journey but hoping to get back to it. My wife and I took a short (only 5 days!) trip just through our home county in the UK. We did wild camping along the way as the UK campsites I've seen definitely don't compare to those in the US.
