For those of you who haven’t heard, Ryan Van Duzer of New Belgium Brewing is pedaling across America on a 3 speed cruiser with a trailer in tow in support of bicycle awareness. He’s due to pass through the Phoenix area on Friday morning. Representatives from Tempe and Scottsdale will be out to meet and talk with Ryan at 10:30am at McDowell & the Crosscut Canal which is halfway between Galvin Parkway and 68th Street. All are welcome to join along in pedaling as he travels through Phoenix. These are all the details we have right now, so if you’d like to pedal along it’s probably best to be at the above mentioned location @ 10:30am on Friday, June 26th. Here’s a snippet from the League of American Bicyclists on Ryan’s journey:
Ryan Van Duzer, an experienced journalist, adventurer and athlete is representing New Belgium Brewery, one of the League’s Platinum-level Bicycle Friendly Businesses, and riding a New Belgium cruiser bike across the country under New Belgium’s Team Wonderbike banner. Duzer left June 17 from Oceanside, Calif., which was coordinated to leave the same day as their Race Across America. Duzer received an official send-off from Colorado Governor Bill Ritter. Duzer will ride from Oceanside, Calif. to Washington, D.C., arriving in D.C. mid August.
The cross-country bike ride is to raise awareness about the bicycle by highlighting that if one person can ride a three-speed across America, anyone can surely become a bicycle commuter and ride your bike to work or to the store.
