First a little news and shout out.  Megan and Kyle Ramey of Bikabout swirled through Greenville along with their adorable daughter, had a fabulous time and really did us proud.  Bikabout's stated mission:  "Inspire 2-wheeled tourism in great biking cities with gateway drugs for the bike curious AND donate 25% of revenue to transportation advocacy."

As outlined in a previous post this bicycle tourism phenomenon is getting outta hand!  Pretty soon it won’t be a phenomenon and will be, well, just a way of life here in the States, and we couldn’t be happier!  Think traveling by bike is a big a deal?  A production?  Not really.  A little planing is required, yes, but it’s a total gas and the feeling of freedom can’t be beat!
