NBG Day - What Happens?
Brought to you by:
Be a select guest to Chris Llewellyn’s (at left) 16th Birthday!!! NBG Director, Martin Krieg, at right., also turns 16 +++ on the same day

Join the nonprofit National Bicycle Greenway (NBG) in helping Martin Krieg assure safe passage for the world famous 15-person Busycle when he escorts it from San Francisco to Boston next Spring on his third bike ride across America. Joined by Chris Llewellyn and a team of scouts, Krieg will be connecting 22 Mayors' Ride cities to one another on a 19th Century Penny Farthing to honor the 125 year anniversary of the very first bike ride across the US by Thomas Stevens.

We here at the National Bicycle Greenway have been honored with the Busycle for two seasons now as we ramp up for its return to the 60-person community that built it in Boston, MA. You can help us get it back to the artists, professors, engineers, pastry chefs and mechanics, etc, who let us play with it as we now collect ideas, designs and ehancements for Busycle 2.0!

At this sprawling YMCA complex, our event will take place in the massive gym at left, above. While just outside the doors is the enormous parking lot, at the far right, where there will be a 1/4 mile loop for Busycle rides and the kinetic sculpture vehicles from throughout the Bay Area that will be there!

Come to our party!!
