Localmotive Bike Tour 2011

Two years ago we were in college sitting around wondering if it was possible to bicycle across the country. Searching online, we found out about the TransAmerica Trail. It runs from Yorktown, Virginia to Astoria, Oregon, and was chosen in 1976 to take cyclists though small-town America. We started dreaming of the adventure to be had and never looked back. We planned a program to give to youth on knowing where their food comes from and we fundraised to pay for food and equipment.

Localmotive Bike Tour

Fast forward to this summer: we’re in Missouri at a YMCA camp. We have biked more than 1000 miles already and we have a hard time keeping the campers focused on food issues rather than on the fact that we shower maybe once a week on the trail. Eventually, though, we get down to some good conversation on their school lunch food and how they’d like to change it. So far so good, Localmotive Bike Tour.

This Holiday Season, A Gift from You Could Save A Life

A message from  Emergency Response Services for Latin America (ERSLA)…

ERSLAClean water is something many of us take for granted every day. But in Nicaragua, according to the World Health Organization, thousands contract illness, and hundreds, mainly young children, die from the simple lack of clean water. For less than a nickel a day, or the price of a holiday gift, you can give the gift of health and life to one family in one of the most impoverished countries in the world. Your gift donation can help save lives.

Local firefighters are teaming up with ERSLA to help identify the families most at risk and provide them with a simple water filtration system that will keep them safe and healthy.
