To anyone interested in a cross-country bike ride this summer, from Everett, WA. To Washington D.C. contact http://www.bike4peace.org
We leave August 1 and arrive in D.C. on September 22, which is world car free day!
This 7 ½ week tour takes us through 11 states; Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, S. Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland and D.C.
There is no support vehicle on this tour, every rider carries his supplies, we share the load on certain things. We have a network of hosts that put us up for the night in most stops, or we camp. If you are interested, we a have copy of the route guide that can be emailed to you.
I have done this ride 2 years now and I'm looking forward to leading the way again this summer. It is an adventure of a life time!!!
This sounds great, and I'd love to join you guys. For a tour that's about progressive causes, peace, and the environment, though, I can't really justify the costs in terms of carbon emissions to fly to Everett from NYC just to come back to the East Coast. Good luck though, it sounds like a lot of fun!
