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 have a 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!!!

Urban Cycling / why bike?

why bike? tell your story.
it all started for me when i lost a job about 12 years ago and could not afford to drive anymore. now, i do it because of the many benefits, not just the money thing.
cars are coffins! they rob me of any serenity that i have. riding a bicycle is healthier for the "whole" person, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. to me cycling has been a spiritual experience. it is very liberating for the soul to not be trapped in a box, isolated from from your surroundings.
thats why i bike4peace!
