Cleveland

Hi, all.

Owen and I are staying with his grandmother on the west side of Cleveland. The event in Oberlin went well–about 15 people attended! And, I decided to draw my blog post:

We stayed at the George Jones Memorial Farm with an old high school friend just outside of Oberlin. They grow veggies for City Fresh, a CSA that feeds NE Ohio.

Cousin Geoff helped weld a bracket for my safety flag in Chicago–safety first!

Then, we took the ferry across Lake Michigan to Muskegon, MI. And we started biking again from there!

Ann Arbor was a great discussion. The people at Mich House (part of the Ann Arbor Student Co ops) were so hospitable! Shower, snacks, and a great time.

A few weeks ago, Sustainable Cycles got written up in the New York Village Voice. Read the article here.

People are overall stoked about this project as I continue along on this bike ride. I have given cups away at organized events and during random conversations with hosts and people on the street. Some have expressed interest in becoming ‘spokespeople’ for alternative menstruation, and one person wants to ride for Sustainable Cycles next summer!

Looking forward to heading into the city August 3–come on out, meet us at the border, and ride in with us! I’ll give specific time and place soon…
