30 Days Of Biking
Allen Beauchamp is a bike. For those that know him this needs no more explanation, for those that don't you should know that there is no other individual of sound mind and body (this is questionable) that embodies the positive energy, youthful exuberance, and passion more than Allen. I have seen Allen fit amazing folks on adaptive cycles at AngleTech, I have seen him haul full kegs of beer around to events, he has set up countless bike valet parking at events, hosted a myriad of community cycling empowerment events, headed to D.C. to discuss the power of cycling to the powers that be and I have no doubt that when he dies he will be reborn as a bike, the kind of bike that makes everyone smile and know they are better for enjoying a life on wheels.
As such I wanted to bring to your attention an event that Allen will no doubt be championing and I think all of us should as well. It is simply called 30 days of Biking.
30 Days of Biking has one rule ...
Bike somewhere every day for 30 days—around the block, 20 miles to work, whatever suits you—then share your adventures online. We advocate daily bicycling because we believe it enriches lives and preserves the Earth. A worldwide, thousands-strong community of joyful cyclists has been forming around that idea since April 2010—and will further amass in 2012.
- We ride our bikes every day. -
Pretty darn simple, huh? But will you join us? Will you get out there each and every day for a month and celebrate your own power and happiness? Will you break down and get out there and ride? If you do, I have no doubt you will feel better, smile more, and remember the simple pleasures of life.
I have joined and will lead the UpaDowna charge as we turn over the pedals and celebrate the amazing act of cycling.
