Darren Alff of Bicycletouringpro.com wrote to let our readers know about an upcoming Web-based event going on at their site. Here’s a little bit about it from the site:
The event, titled, â€œBicycle Travel As A Modern Lifestyle Choice,â€? will take place on the weekend of November 22nd and 23rd and will feature a jam-packed schedule of articles, interviews, videos, and live Q&A sessions having to do with bicycle travel, commuting, and lifestyle design. The event is aimed at anyone interested in learning how to use a bicycle to change the way they live, work and travel.
Event participants include:
- The Adventure Cycling Association
- Author, Joe Kurmaskie (The Metal Cowboy)
- Bike Friday
- Canadian Best Selling Author, Ted Schredd (The Cycling Adventures of Coconut Head)
- Entrepreneur, Yaro Starak
- Gene Bisbee
- Momentum Magazine
- Road ID
- Writer and World traveler, Chris Guillebeau
The goal of the event is to introduce people to bicycle travel (whether it be short trips around their homeâ€¦ or long distance tours across the country). The information will be totally free and open to anyoneâ€¦ anywhere! All thatâ€™s needed to participate is an Internet connection.
As a bonus, cycling products donated by the Adventure Cycling Association, BicycleTouringPro.com, CycleAware, and Yakkay will be also be raffled off to event participants.
As you can see, it will be a star-studded event. The crew from Bikecommuters.com put together a quick and dirty “crash course” in bicycle commuting (aimed at first-time and novice commuters) for this event…nice to rub shoulders with Internet bicycling “big guns”! Check it out, and if you register with your email address, you’ll be eligible for some great prizes.
