Folks are also encouraged to donate cycling equipment for the kids. Pedals, shoes, helmets and smaller sized clothing is very helpful
This events is a blend of my two worlds... geeks and bikes! Some great local tech companies like Gnip, Lijit, Filtrbox, Techstars, are hosting a networking meeting at the Boulder Draft House this Friday from 4pm -6pm. Meet the two guys behind Real Geeks Ride and help the cycling students of Casey Middle School by making a donation, Catherine Powers will be there to personally thank everyone helping them out!
About Real Geeks who ride...
This ride across the USA, and the months leading up to it, is about their transition from ‘geeks’ into ‘geeks with bikes’. They will be showing, through realgeeksride.com and various forms of social media, the challenges, myths, and culture of cycling, the way a geek would understand them.
Through their example, they hope to inspire (or potentially force) other geeks to change their commuting habits. If these two geeks can make it across the USA, it is foolish to think other geeks can not at least bike to work.
I will very likely be there so stop by to say hi and talk MVC frameworks or bikes... you know me
