“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.” ~ Nelson Henderson
We are riding our bicycles from Washington, D.C. to Seattle, WA in the name of love, optimism, and compassion. As a symbol, we will plant trees to leave reminders that it is up to us and our actions to make this country and the world a better place, now and in the future.
The plan is to start riding from Georgetown in Washington, D.C. up north, through the Northern U.S. (see maps). We would like to average 50 – 60 miles per day, while setting camps at night, unless friends help us with accommodations. Along the way, we will find nurseries, appropriate planting sites, types of trees, which we would plant as optimistic symbols with our supporters’ names. Other than that, when around WiFi, we’ll send you a lot of pictures and hope to see you join us on this journey.
