Today marks the first day of our trip south to Mexico on bicycles! But first just to San Jose, CA. There are four of us riding today and more will meet up with us tomorrow and along the way!
Our group is called bicicletas por La Paz, translation is bikes for peace. We will be playing music shows the whole way down, I will be live painting and we are all riding bikes! There will be a lot of random camping, warm showers, couch surfing and visiting of friends. Some will be joining us along the way and others will leave us along the journey as well.
Where will we stop? How long is the trip? It’s open ended and there are endless possibilities.
The house “Hurricane of Bikes” in Oakland, California has been my home the last week. It’s a collective group of 8 people who all take an active role in the house by sharing food, gardening and putting on community events. The space is unbelievable and typically houses a couple of travelers and couch surfers. I am so thankful for this experience as its prepared me for the journey and I’ve met many people that are so beautiful and unique. Thank you hurricane of bikes house!
Here is to our first day! Off to San Josee, California in the rain for our first ride. I am nervous to carry all that weight at once! It will be a great new experience
