I've been a visitor on this forum for the past 4 years or so and am a huge Reds fan. My brother is riding his bicycle to catch a game in all 30 stadiums this summer. He is also a Reds fan and I guess a bigger baseball fan than I am. Here's a link to his facebook page. Thought it might be of interest!

Does he have a spare tire in case he gets a flat? That could be catastrophic! :eek:

That trip to Seattle has to be really out of his way!

He started from Bellingham, Washington and hit Seattle on opening day. Just an update Jim Caple wrote an article on Espn.com about him. The kid is kicking some ass!

How old is he? Not asking to be an ass, but guess he isnt working if he can take all that time-how long is his trip planned to take? Must be nice, dont know if I am more jealous of that or the trip itself-haha/

He's 24 got his undergrad at Western Washington in Bellingham and had been working as the meat manager at a co-op there for the past four years or so. He's making this trip with money he's saved up since then. I think he's planning to be done sometime in September in Kansas City.
