My Crazy, Pedalling Cross Country for A Good Cause Neighbor

On Wednesday, our neighbor Pete is embarking on a cross country bike trip to raise money for Project Chicken in Nicaragua - a program that provides rural families with food and income. His non-profit organization is called Wheels for Change, and he is part of a two man bicycling adventure to raise funds and awareness in support of this branch of Partnerships in Health.

Taking a northern route from Ocean Park, Maine to Seattle, Washington the guys expect 40 or so days of fun filled pedalling. I'll be checking their website for photos and updates, as they adjust to over a month of greeting the same bike seat every day, spending so much quality time together, camping, limited bathing, granola bars and ramen noodles, and relying on the kindness of others.

Best of luck and swift wheels!

Sorry, I had to delete my first response to you. I didn't think the language was appropriate after all.

I would love to post, but I haven't time right now. I'm actually at work, working. Imagine that! There are suddenly many, many projects that absolutely must be done before I can leave for vacation on Friday. As you know, I am the only person with a brain around here and things are going to hell rapidly.

You will probably have to wait until after this weekend. Don't worry, I'll bring my camera.
