That Cycling Chick's
Upon learning about my moneyless bike challenge, some of my friends got worried:
"Without money?! Will I be able to sponsor you some dinner at a nice restaurant at least?"
As much as I love my friends and find them adorable for being truly concerned, the idea of this experiment is simple: I do not want to use ANY money, regardless of whether it's mine or yours (except in a medical emergency and for my mobile plan).
The idea of a sponsored meal made me come up with something different: since I won't be using money during my trip, collecting any for myself would be rather pointless. What about, though, having my kilometres sponsored by whomever likes the idea and donating whatever I collect to a cause I support?
Methinks, it's a win-win solution: I get motivated to persevere even through the hardest of troubles (and headwind) and I get to support people doing wonderful work at making this world a better place.
Like the idea?
RIDE WITH ME
Can't remember what a bike looks like? Here's a great opportunity to refresh your memory.
Afraid of truck drivers? United we ride!
Can't do hills? Neither can I so let's walk them together!
Not sure how to fix a puncture? I'll do it for you.
Worried at being last? Don't be! I'll hang at the back and make sure I'm behind you.
Can actually cycle and think it's going to be too easy for you? Come and cycle alongside someone less good and help them make it.
