We are two goobers that decided to get on our bicycle and ride coast to coast across America this summer. How about you shift into second gear this morning and Ask Us Anything!
**Hey there! Our names are Connor O'Brien and Athena Jones. This summer we rode our bicycles from Virginia Beach, Virginia to Cannon Beach, Oregon. We went with an affordable housing organization called Bike and Build which sends groups of roughly 30 riders on 8 different cross American bike trips each year to raise money and awareness about the affordable housing problem in America. We were on the central route with 31 other riders. Along the way we had some pretty great times that we would like to share with you all. Here is our route http://bikeandbuild.org/rider/route.php?route=CUS&year=2014
(sidenote, we do not formally represent Bike and Build, this is just us sharing our experiences) **
**Proof: (Connor)I took at least one panorama photo a day while on the trip. This is the first part of my daily panorama album, I'll release the whole thing in a separate post/when it all eventually uploads.
Also, here are our profiles on the official Bike and Build Website. We each were required to fundraise 4,500$ to join the trip.
(Athena) a random video, not the best, but proof https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvhKpw39V40&feature=youtu.be**
Edit: Please feel free to check out Bike&Build.org It really is a good cause and a great program that I cannot recommend enough. No one has asked this yet, but I was not a cyclist before the trip, I barely knew how to use clip in pedals. If I can do it, you can too!
Edit #2: Thanks everyone!
