How does riding 3000 miles across the United States next summer grab ya? Now, imagine doing this with one gear.
That's what the participants of the The Big Fix plan to do to raise money and awareness for the Histiocytosis Association of America. Ride organizers hope to get about 20 cross-country participants who will each raise at least $5000. Riders can also elect to participate in shorter legs of the journey.
Phil Wood is backing this with hubs, building custom bikes, generating exposure at trade shows, and just getting the word out in general. To encourage giving, the first 200 people donating at least $50 will get a chance to win one of 15 Phil Wood hubsets of your choice.
Walter told me about this. Please pass the word about The Big Fix.
