The Co-cyle team has recently been posting updates on Shareable about their cross-country student bike tour that is celebrating co-ops across the United States. A crew has been accompanying the cyclists and is making a documentary about the trip called To The Moon and recently released this film teaser:
Thus far, Co-cyle has visited the following co-ops in the western U.S.:
- Arizmendi Bakery & Pizzeria – Emeryville, California
- Missing Link Bicycle Cooperative – Berkeley, California
- The Cheese Board Collective – Berkeley, California
- Bicycle Works – San Anselmo, California
- Redwood Credit Union – Santa Rosa, California
- Corners of the Mouth – Mendocino, California
- Community Trust CU – Garberville, California
- North Coast Co-op – Eureka and Arcata, California
- Ocean Air Farms – Fort Dick, California
- Equal Exchange – Portland, Oregon
- The Red and Black Cafe – Portland, Oregon
- Rivermark Community Credit Union – Portland, Oregon
- The People’s Food Co-op – Portland, Oregon

- UM Flat – an experiential live in house for University of Montana students to demonstrate sustainable living practices – Missoula, Montana
This week, the students began what's likely the most difficult leg of their journey: an 1126-mile stint from Bozeman, Montana to Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Shareable readers can expect additional updates from the Co-cycle students in the Community Blog during the remaining six weeks of their trip. As the film's director Emma Thatcher emailed me last night:
"We will be in minneapolis on the 27th and from there on out we will be visiting co-ops every couple of days and will have a lot to share! We just have to make it through the Montana heat and North Dakota first."
We wish them cool breezes and easy rolling!
