That’s Cal Prinster, who along with dad Gordon Prinster has just made it to New York City – but not by plane or train or car or even motorcycle: They just finished pedaling cross-country! We told you about their plan just before they left back in June; here’s that story. This morning we heard from Gordon, who also shared the photo:
We arrived in Lower Manhattan – slightly thinner – on 8/11/12. We pedaled 3,639 miles in 49 days. It was an unbelievable adventure. We’re now lounging under a tree in Strawberry Fields on a perfect day in Central Park.
Gordon adds that he and Cal – who starts 7th grade at Madison Middle School in 3 weeks – are “looking forward to thanking everybody that gave to pbtfus.org.” That’s the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, for which they raised money with not only this trip but also their 1,732-mile bike ride to the Mexican border last summer. (You can still donate – just follow this link, and please mention Cal Prinster as the “honoree” so they can keep track of everyone who donated in honor of their ride.)
Sorry, comment time is over.
