Ride Earth

Ride Earth is the collective name for three British guys who have decided to ride their bikes around the world for the next few years. It has something to do with raising awareness and finding oneself—I'm not really sure of the specifics—mostly I've been paying attention because these guys are younger than me and probably no more clever. They just want to do something big and are doing it. They found some sponsers and used their web design skills to get the word out; currently they keep a blog and publish video podcasts with which you can keep track of their progress. I think they're currently in Turkey, having set out from England in the summer.

I bring this up, one, because I told you I would explain the links I placed in the sidebar, and two, because I really think you should read their recent post concerning the difficulties they've had. If nothing else it is a chilling account of how wicked identity theft can be. Check it out here.

You can get the RSS feed by clicking here (find out what RSS is by clicking here), and you can subscribe to their podcasts by searching "Ride Earth" in your iTunes store or by clicking here.
