Old School BMX Rides Across Iowa...

Hi BMX Society!

 

I'm riding across Iowa on a 1982 Mongoose Two-Four!

 

I'll blog and tweet all the cool stuff: BMXmongoose.com

Zeekle, that's cool that you're doing it again this year. I got to meet you last year at Brian's B-day BBQ after your last ride. It was nice meeting you and talking about BMX, the ride, and your time living in Prague. I was most impressed that you did the ride last year on a Motomag and that the owner of Mongoose gave you the retro KOS cruiser as a show of respect and solidarity for doing it. I can't imagine the effort it must take to ride a 20 inch bike that far, in that heat, and with that helmet on your head. Hopefully you'll have an easier go of it this year seeing how this bike is bigger and actually has some gears. Be safe and have lots of fun out there. :Liv2ride:

This is Lauren!

She's halfway finished with a transcontinental bike ride across the U.S.A. (east to west). Currently, she's in the middle of Kansas and yesterday, she rode 123 miles!

Her bike blog: http://breezybikes.wordpress.com

 

The '82 Mongoose Two Four was a big hit - it stood out from the crowd and everybody loved it - I think I'm going to ride this bike next year too - it's a powerful little 15 speed :)

Lauren is a badass... Kansas is hot as hell this time of year. 123 miles is no joke.
