Well welcome to another week of work and as per usual on Mondays, Iâ€™d like to be somewhere else. Like my bed, still sleeping. It was a fight with the snooze alarm to get here today and Iâ€™m officially in so I will make the most of it.
Last week I did a story where I kind of grabbed a camera, flew out the door and crossed my fingers.
It was about two hipsterish dudes from South Park Slope in the Bronx. Nothing fancy about hipsters but these two were riding their bikes across the country will no assistance.
The best part was that they did not have a cause, just doing it to do to do it and see the country from the two wheels of a touring bike.
They are uploading a website with updates as they go along in the trip and one is doing some writing while the other does drawings of their journey.
Camping as they go along, this seems like it would be a pretty fun trip. I donâ€™t think I could produce 100 mile-a-day trips but more power to them because they can.
They should be somewhere in Montana along Highway 2 right now.
Hereâ€™s a song that features bicycles. Enjoy.
