Goodfluence Bicycle Tour – Week 1
Our good friend, Rob Greenfield continues his ride across the United States in an effort to promote goodness. He’s calling it the Goodfluence Tour, and with his infectious attitude of ultimate friendliness, he will be encouraging people to do more good for the earth, their community, and themselves.
Why is it called “Goodfluence”? Well, that is also the name of the new social network he is launching on July 1. This network will use the power of social media and the goodness of others to help influence us all to do more good. We’ll tell you more about Goodfluence.com as it gets closer to launch time, and be sure to download it on July 1.
Rob’s been on the road since June 1, and has been riding through desert conditions for the past few days. On Friday he rode 108 miles in 108 degree heat….a new record for him.
Not only is Rob a positive role model and preacher of goodness, he’s also a great writer who shoots out a lot of wisdom from his writing stick. Here’s a little piece he wrote last week:
Bike2Power Powers Rob
If you didn’t already know, Rob Greenfield is very minimalistic and has done loads of projects showing people how to live more sustainable. The only electronics Rob has on his bike tour is an iPhone so that he can post updates to his fans along the way. His only method of powering his phone is through pedal power and his Bike2Power products.
Rob isn’t concerned with having the latest and greatest when it comes to his phone, so he has an iPhone4. But, Bike2Power is able to accommodate users of a variety of different makes and models. They are also both element and drop proof….and definitely made for any amount of riding you throw at it. Here’s a link to the different phone mounts they carry.
Each Tuesday we’ll have updates from Rob’s ride, including stories, impacts, and more on his Bike2Power products. In the meantime, you can find out more at www.robgreenfield.tv/goodfluence-tour.
