The Kindness of Strangers

Ramona and Joshua from the Bicycle Kitchen

Jim, Ricardo, and Jeremy leading us from L.A. to Pamona

The Join the Cycle tour has gotten off to a bit of a rough start. We've had complications with bicycles, busy shoulderless roads, and illness. Each time strangers have appeared and offered a helping hand. We have been overwhelmed with the kindess of strangers and send out a hearty thank you to too many people to name. All of these people went out of their way to make sure that 4 travelling strangers were safe and well taken care of. We are so very grateful to all of you. We would particularly like to thank "Saint" Craig. Craig helped us out time and again by feeding the hungry, giving shelter to the needy and providing time and resources beyond what anyone could ever hope for. Thank you.

  1. YAAAAAAAAY, blogs, finally! So great to see some pics and hear some thoughts. Nice to see the bikes to get an idea of how loaded down they are. WOW! Wishing you all well and am oh so proud.

  2. Thank you for the post and photos! Keep them coming! Hannah was in Seligman when she was 11 months old - it probably hasn't changed much. Seems like there's more to the Saint Craig story that we'll hear one day.
    Be safe and happy.

  3. Hi Hannah and Casey - I just bought a shirt, love your logo, your idea, and reading about your adventures. Good luck with everything and keep healthy and keep going! - Josh Winer
