— wHAT IS THIS? —
Do you feel as if political partisanship is dividing your country and your community? Maybe even your own family? During the summer of 2019, starting in Los Angeles, CA., a team of explorers will embark on a 4,000 mile bicycle trek across America that will end in Washington D.C.. The team aims to hold 100 conversations with Americans across the political spectrum.

— the encounter —
religious, political, racial and everything in between.
The explorers are on a quest for common ground. They want a fair and balanced exploration of America so they’ll divide their time evenly between coastal and inland, urban and rural—linking communities to the power of the bike. They have found bicycles uniquely qualified for a quest of this nature because bicycle travel has the special ability to break the conversational ice and be vulnerable with folks right from the start.
If you want to build bridges, come with and help us tell the story. The American Renaissance is here.
