Biking Across America: Day 3, On the Radio


This post is one in a series of video blogs about biking across America with WE ADD UP to raise awareness about how to stop global warming. Check out more posts in this series here.

When we started out to bike across the country, we had an idea to try and play music at some college radio stations; back in Boston, Carson is in an indie rock band called Miles From Land. We were excited when "Planet Blue," a radio show at Vassar College's (Poughkeepsie, NY) WKVR, offered us a chance to stop by on Day 3 of the bike trip. Chris Ruhe, DJ of Planet Blue, a show focusing on environmental news from the previous week, interviewed a worn out Carson (271 miles in 3 days!) on air about the bike trip, a mutual love of cycling, and the partnership with WE ADD UP. Both Chris and Carson agreed that it is important to encourage others that even the smallest, environmentally sound actions do, indeed, add up.WE ADD UP is an organic t-shirt campaign that counts you in the fight to stop global warming. Choose an action you're committing to doing on the back of your tee. 28 choices include Recycle, Buy Local, Bike, Plant Trees, and Shower Together.
