Thanks to my brother Matt, Julie is now riding a new Quest 559, compliments of Cruzbike. Many thanks to company presidents Jim and Maria Parker, inventor John Tolhurst and technical specialist Doug Burton, who outfitted the bike for Julie. The Cruzbike Quest has disc brakes, SRAM Dualdrive gears and is a folding bike that fits into a box half the size of a normal bike box, making it much easier to take on a plane, train or bus (or to ship UPS). For more info click on the Cruzbike Quest logo on the upper right side of our homepage.

My bike box (on the left) barely survived 3 tranfers from Berlin to Denver.

Julie is getting comfortable on her new Quest after cycling into Denver to visit her old Peace Corps Liberia friends Mark and Monica Hughes. Thanks again to Matt and Karen Byrne for hosting us in Colorado.
