Lots of seriousness out and about in the cycling community these days. Fortunately there's some positive and pretty fun/cool stuff happening as well:
Peter Mulvey is a singer/songwriter from Milwaukee, WI. Today he starts off on a concert tour on his bike. Looks like a seriously cool project:
- From September 9-26, Milwaukee-based, internationally-touring singer-songwriter Peter Mulvey will again take to his bicycle for a concert tour. This year’s third annual bike/concert tour will not follow the previous years’ path, when he rode a “circular route in Wisconsin” concept. The Long Haul Tour begins September 9 with a ferry ride from Milwaukee to Muskegon, MI, where Peter will take to his recumbent bike rigged with guitar and travel necessities and pedal to Grand Rapids for the tour’s kick-off show. From there it’s on to three more Michigan shows, then due east for three shows in New York state, and another three in Massachusetts – with daily rides this year ranging from 40 to 101 miles.
Closest he's going to get will be Buffalo, NY. Were it not on the 15th, the very day I'm moving, I think I'd have to ride down there to see it. After all, if he could ride all the way there from Michigan to perform, the least I could do would be to ride the relatively short distance from here.
This isn't the first time he's done anything like this. A year ago he did his "No Gasoline Tour" as a follow-up to his 2007 7 city, 500 mile tour by bike.
