Howdy, we’re the Rascals!  We’re a bike-crazy family of three, about to embark on a year-long adventure around North America in an RV.  As we go, we’ll be raising money for World Bicycle Relief and sharing our stories so as to inspire other families to get outdoors together on bikes.  You might also know us from Rascal Rides, a website we run about biking with kids.

August 2017

Where are you going?

We’ll be traversing across portions of the United States and Canada, primarily exploring places we’ve never been before and looking for great singletrack.  Check out our tentative itinerary here.

What’s World Bicycle Relief and why are you raising money?

World Bicycle Relief is a fantastic non-profit that provides specially-designed, rugged bicycles to students in Africa.  Our goal is to raise $15,000 for the organization, which equates to 100 bicycles.  Read more about the organization and our efforts here.

Do you need sponsors?

We do!  Sponsors are distinctly different from donors, in that they help us make our travels possible.  Donors, on the other hand, make donations directly to World Bicycle Relief (we never see your money).
