Wish Team Alabamboo could teleport our asses down to Greensboro, AL for the @COMMONworks MBA session. Live stream at www.common.is #cmmn
Our thoughts are with Alabama after the devastating tornadoes that swept through the state and much of the South yesterday. Now more than ever we’re determined to help shape a positive economic future for the state of Alabama by sharing the Alabamboo story.
If you’d like to contribute to relief efforts in Alabama, consider making a donation to our friends at HERO, the Hale Empowerment and Revitalization Organization. They are providing immediate relief and assessing the next steps for long-term rebuilding.
See you soon, Alabama.
We’ll be sharing more about Team Alabamboo in the weeks leading up to the ride. Read on!
What motivated you to participate in the Alabamboo Bike Ride?
The whole beginning was a half-joke while on a bike ride with John Bielenberg & Brian W. Jones. During one of our lunch rides, I mentioned the idea that “before I turned 30 (which was about 13 months away) I wanted to ride across country.” John joked around saying that I should do it on my NADA bike (a fixed gear) for the whole trip. We all laughed and continued with the joke. By the end of the ride we had a rough idea of building a Project M initiative around the ride using Alabamboo for our bikes and assembling a team of core riders. Since then, it has snowballed into what it is today.
RT @MotherboardTV: @GOOD we’re really inspired by @projectm and @commonworks for what they’re doing with bamboo bikes http://bit.ly/e216cF.
9 days left to lend your support to a few driven 20-somethings that want to promote progress & talk #bamboo. http://is.gd/nZQq9D Please RT!
Thank you for the support and tweets, @ProjectHDesign!
Glad to have @orontas on board for the ride. Read their post on @commonworks and their part in making this ride happen: http://is.gd/RmidA7
