Project Pedal - A Vlog and Documentary
This movie and bicycle trek will,
bookend with the Pacific and Atlantic oceans... anchored to a small group's cross country trip and focusing on the inspiring people that cross their path.
Each week a vlog will be posted that will share stories from these people met along the way - as well as the main cast and the occasional behind-the-scenes footage. In the end, the bi-product of these vlogs will be used for a feature length documentary.
The end-goal of this project, both in it's vlog and documentary form, is to share people's reasons and motivations behind their trip. Most importantly to share what makes or drives a person to leave everything behind and to understand what they each take away from this overwhelming and painful journey.

Quoted from ProjectPedal.com
The large majority of questions "slash" concerns dealt with PEDAL's exact process, and in relation to this; the exact results. 1) Who are we following? 2) Who are we interviewing? 3) Are we driving, or also riding bicycles? 4) How long will this take?

ABATE Motorbicycle Toy Run
PORTLAND, Ore. - This site usually concerns itself with chains cranked by humans not engines.
But when I heard the clatter of motorbikes roar though the land
I sprang from the house with my camera in hand.
I saw outlaws and lawyers on choppers and trikes
and watched as they filled two city buses with toys for the tykes.
Then, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a chopped up hog, with Mrs. Claus on the rear.
With a white bearded driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
And to know that it was done to help the children at Shriners
Made the noisy spectacle all the more finer.
Yes, thousands of Harleys was a sight that was great
And we can all tip our hat to the folks from A.B.A.T.E.
