Our young friend Liza Stoner has arrived in D.C. after a 1,500 mile ride from Minneapolis.
Well done, Liza! The 14-year-old cyclist brought US senator Amy Klobuchar a petition signed by 1,200 Minnesotans to raise awareness about... uh, electric cars. (I rather think it raised awareness of bikes, too.)
Sure, this may be coals to Newcastle. Still. It takes guts (and legs and lungs) to ride cross country.
It especially takes heart to ride through the demoralizing flats of Ohio and Indiana.
Klobuchar, incidentally, has done her fair share of long distance riding -- being one of the pioneers, with her estimable father -- of RAGBRAI.
