It’ll be the ride of their lives.
A British couple are embarking on an epic two-wheeled adventure Sunday, leaving New York to cycle the perimeter of the United States during the next 12 months.
London residents Anthony Carey and Katrina Allison plan to ride through 33 states and cover 14,000 miles while raising money for multiple sclerosis.
“I sort of reached that junction in life where I wanted to do something special,” said Carey, 38, a financial consultant.
“Because it’s such a daunting task, I’m pretty sure that every day is going to be something special.”
The lovebirds, who met in New York in 2006, will take a train to Newark this morning before hopping on their touring bikes for the first of many legs.
They plan to cycle an average of 50 miles a day from now to next Sept. 30, when they are scheduled to arrive in Manhattan toned and exhausted – and a lifetime of stories to tell.
“It’s almost as if you’re traveling through loads of different countries and seeing different terrain, different climates,” said Allison, 39, a lawyer.
This is a call for work – Artists, Thinkers, Creators – We seek your human-powered machines, bicycle-based inventions, and interactive kinetic sculpture. In May of 2010, Rock Paper Scissors Collective is hosting BEYOND BICYCLES, a celebration of the art, science, and politics of harnessing human power. Our inspiration is the bicycle, a simple machine that has transformed our experience of moving through the world. We see the bicycle as possibility, the tip of the big ol’ iceberg of human potential energy.
BEYOND BICYCLES will be an exhibition documenting the many ingenious uses of human power past and present. The Gallery space at Rock Paper Scissors Collective is limited so large works will only be displayed during opening night. Our month long exhibition will consist of a collection large color photographs of works, accompanied by a printed zine. There will also be a web zine which will be more extensive than the printed version.
