More Press Coverage!

Wednesday, November 19th, 2008


On Monday there was a great article written about THE LONG BIKE BACK in the Westchester Journal News.  It was on the front page of the local news section and used a bunch of great pictures from the trip!  The newspaper also made a short video that’s available on their website.  The article is also available without photos online.

We are in the final weeks of fundraising and planning before the epic trip and film shoot (tax-deductible donations can be made by going to and choosing Julia Wrona / The Long Bike Back from the drop down menu).  The trip begins in Newport Oregon on August 12, Pearson’s 30th birthday, it will cover all of US Route 20 and end in Cape Cod Massachusetts on October 1st.  Check back here often for notes, thoughts, ramblings and photos from the trip.

Have a great summer and enjoy your bike!
