Solidarity Cyclers update May 17 - less than a week away!


(note: here's an updated link for donating to CISPES for the solidarity cyclers bike ride)

we're less than a weeks from the big date of departure! We're still planning on riding 160 miles in 3 days which is nota easy task, especially since we'll be traversing the Blue Ridge mountains in West Virginia on Day 2 (listen to the John Denver classic "Country Roads" to find out more, or check out this map:

We're up to about 20 riders for CISPES and the Haiti Reborn program, which is really quite impressive. People are fundraising like crazy and we're expecting to far exceed the historic Solidarity Cyclers 2007 total for donations. Thanks to all the great riders! We also have a new logo (above) courtesy of Freddy Trejo. Finally, the weather report shows 80 degrees and sunny for memorial day weekend and thus all the pieces are in place for an amazing ride.

If you're in the Washington DC area please join us for the post-ride celebration at 6:00 on May 26. You can find out all the details and respond to the evite here.

thanks for your support!
