RASCALS ON THE ROAD

ABOUT THE PROJECT

We’re forgoing the “American Dream” and leaving our stable jobs and house behind for a year on the road with nothing but a truck, a small trailer, and our mountain bikes. Our family of three is headed out in search of epic singletrack, great micro-breweries, and quality time together.   Sound like a selfish dream to you? It did a little bit to us too--which is why we’re dedicating our year to helping get kids and their families on bikes, both locally and globally.

HITTING THE ROAD SUMMER 2017

Our mission

Wanderlust with a purpose.
Our work is to get kids on bikes, both globally and locally.

Our mission is to get kids (and their families) on bikes. At home, there are so many reasons why this is important. Biking creates a vital connection with nature, reduces obesity, provides exercise, builds community, increases confidence, reduces air pollution, and on and on. When it comes to children in less privileged parts of the world, a bike provides all of those things and so much more. It means that they can get to school, and they can do so without living in fear. It means that their family can get to a doctor. Our goal is the raise $15,000 for World Bicycle Relief. That equates to 100 bikes for students in Africa. All donations go directly to World Bicycle Relief, and can be made on our fundraising page at http://fundraise.worldbicyclerelief.org/rascalsontheroad. We’ve seen it with our own eyes, have experienced it in our own lives, and know this is true: bicycles have the power to change the world.
