We are riding to help support Friends of the Lafitte Corridor (http://www.folc-nola.org) to create a bikeway through New Orleans neighborhoods ravaged by Katrinaâ€™s floodwaters. It states this very clearly on our home page, and it does not say anywhere that we are â€œenvironmentalists riding for environmentalism.â€� Unfortunately, Dennis Wagner of the Arizona Republic cared more about getting a rise out of the readers than accurate journalism.
The San Francisco Chronicle article, wrongly states that we created the â€œExtracycleâ€�(the paper didnâ€™t even spell it correctly). We have proudly pedaled the bicycle frame extensions more accurately known as Xtracycles, (http://www.xtracycle.com) that we bought from the company out of a small bike community in North San Juan,
Xtracycles (http://www.xtracycle.com) have changed the way that people ride their bikes. THEY DO IT MORE with a long bike. A revolutionary design that allows you to use your bike for just about whatever you would use a car for. More biking + less driving = happier people.
Check out their website (http://www.xtracycle.com) and learn more about this exciting attachment you can add to your bicycle.
