Tomorrow morning Rebecca and I depart from Point State Park at 7:30am. We plan to be in Washington DC 24 hours later. We’re raising money for a kickass fund that promotes Chasing Ice, the movie that raises awareness of climate change. We have 335 miles to pedal at 15mph with minimal breaks. We’ll be doing it on our tandem. To answer your question: Yes, we are slightly crazy. But, at least it’s for a good cause.

Meet us at the Point tomorrow and please donate to :

Thanks, in advance, for your support.
Seth & Rebecca

Wow!

IMO, you would be better off leaving at 7:30 PM – the GAP would be much easier to navigate in the dark than the C&O

Is it a time to create something like “Iron Butts of PGH” medal? :)

Wow, incredible on many levels. Congrats!

I’m pretty sure there would be a stabbing if I took the g/f on a 24 hour ride, not sure if I’d be the suspect or the victim.
