TakeYourBike is a not-for-profit organization that was created in an effort to help raise awareness of the many benefits introduced by incorporating commuter cycling into your daily life. We promote the many positive facets of a commuter cyclist’s lifestyle including the health benefits, environmental sustainability, economic impact, and community mentality. The Border2Border tour is to be the first of many actions on our part to build a more active and conscious base of commuters – cyclists and non-cyclists alike.
On September 12, 2010, the TakeYourBike team will ride their bikes from Canada to Mexico in an effort to promote the viability of bicycles as a daily transportation vehicle, the sustainability of the bicycle as a mode of transportation in today’s global climate, and the many other positive facets of incorporating riding a bike into your daily life. Over 6 weeks long in duration, the Border2Border Tour will pass through Seattle, Olympia, Portland, Sacramento, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Venice Beach, Los Angeles, Huntington Beach, and San Diego hosting awareness rides, running promotional events at local bike shops, and interviewing members of the commuter cycling community.
