Michael Manning by Bike; Boston to Montréal!

THE STORY:

The return happens this week, Montréal to Boston by bike! Thanks for your support!

 

On April 17th my bike was stolen from our backyard in Somerville. I've been carless since 2008 and my bike was more than just my transportation. I'm a single dad and it was really how I did everything, from getting into Boston for my son's cello rehearsals and concerts to going to my kids games and schools. I'm also a photographer and it was how I explored and photographed New England, both for work and while doing my own art. After a few days of being angry and looking for the bike everywhere I decided to purchase a used bike, turn my loss into something positive and not let the thieves win. I'm doing a ride for charity. I want to help people who really need it most. To keep it positive. I've been connected to Boston's homeless community for a number of years, I have friends who have been in and out of homelessness, have been living on the street and have experienced deep poverty. I found an organization which addresses those issues in the CEOC. They have real impact on a daily basis. I decided on Montréal because it will be a great challenge, and my daughter Tremé is at school there. Seeing her will make the journey's end extra special for me. I'm excited for the road ahead and the vistas of Vermont and Québec. If you're able to contribute, even a small amount, everything is appreciated. My planned route is Brattleboro/Rutland/Burlington/Montreal, and I’ve heard the area in Lake Champlain called Grand Isle is stunning. I'll be taking pictures, documenting the trip and posting artwork on the way on my Instagram page, at Instagram.com/michaelmanningphoto

 

Thanks so much for your consideration. Michael
