ABOUT ME

Currently on tour in the MidWest, but I can probably still help you find lodging/tools/parts/fun in Austin. * * * TELEPHONE IS CURRENTLY BEST METHOD OF CONTACT 504.723.6134 * * * The 21st Street Co-op (100 students, open for hostelling at least) 707 w 21st Street 78705 (http//www.collegehouses.org) Has a community bike co-op in the back yard that is all-volunteer all-donation (http://www.austinyellowbike.org).

BECAUSE I TRAVEL MOSTLY BY BICYCLE MY PROFILE ON WWW.WARMSHOWERS.ORG IS WAAAY MORE DEVELOPED THAN THIS ONE: http://www.warmshowers.org/users/gonzotheweirdo

I am a 24 year-old Eagle Scout and recent Psychology graduate of The University of Texas at Austin. I drove a pedicab (~rickshaw, ~bicycle taxi) while I was in school, and I have been using that skill to fund my tour(s) this summer whenever I pass through a city that has it.

Summer Bicycle Tour(s) So Far: I toured from Austin to Washington DC in April for the annual meeting and conference of the National Co-operative Business Association(http://www.ncba.coop). In June I rode from Madison Wisconsin to Detroit Michigan for the US Social Forum (http://www.ussf2010.org) with a group of about 30 activists and their kids (http://www.grassroutescaravan.org, http://www.bikeit.org). From there I rode west to Chicago and drove a pedicab for the Pitchfork Music Festival (http://www.pitchforkmusicfestival.com/). In Milwaukee, I volunteered for the Riverwest 24-Hour Bike Race (http://www.riverwest24.com).
