As I mentioned in March, fellow lindy hopper Alain Wong from Montreal committed to riding a bicycle from Vancouver, BC to Tijuana, Mexico for the cause of microcredit lending. I got to meet Alain and some of his friends at Boston Tea Party, which was really cool. Alain and his bike team began their ride a couple of days ago, which you can read about on his blog.
As a reminder , here’s the description of why he’s riding so far:
There are two goals to this 3000 km, 7 week ride. I’m raising $3000
for the AOC micro-credit fund, and I’m promoting micro-credit as a tool
to fight poverty and empower women. All the money you donate will go directly to people in need, without overhead. So support me by donating today.
You can go to his donate page to contribute to the cause. Here’s wishing for good weather, kind strangers, and awesome adventures along the way! Wish I could roll with you guys!
