July 2008 General Meeting

Cycling from New England to Colombia, S.A.

Monday, July 28, 6:30 PM

Location: Lower Manhattan Business Improvement District, 104 Washington Street (near Rector Street), Manhattan. Subways: 1/R/W to Rector, or 4/5 to Wall Street. You can lock your bike right outside the building, which also houses a police substation.

Did you ever have a quest, a goal, something that you're going to do someday? And if it's really a challenge, "something you can tell your grandchildren? Well, these "Tres amigos" had a goal, a big one. So, back in the Summer of 2005, one set off from Boston, met the second in Rhode Island and the two met the third in New York City. From there, these "Tres Cabelleros" had the adventure of their lives riding their bikes through North and Central America all the way to Colombia. Come hear about what happened at the July General Meeting. Light refreshments will be served.
