Snacktical re:Treat, A Bicycle Adventure
At the end of 2016 my partner Jay and I started planning a 2 month trip for the spring of 2017. It took several forms over months of loose planning but all started with traveling north along the West coast of the US. The form of transportation shifted from motorcycle to truck and we finally settled on traveling by bicycle.
We'd planned to start San Francisco and go as far north as we could before I had to return to Boston, to coach at American Rendezvous at the end of June. A monkey wrench was thrown into our plan when we were invited as members of SCUL to travel to Lithuania to help teach workshop to kids on bicycle maintenance and art bike building. The details were limited but we decided it was a once in a lifetime opportunity and we had to go for it. We rejiggered the plan and settled on a one month tour of the West coast from San Fransisco to Seattle followed immediately by two weeks in Lithuania building art bikes.
