The Cycle of America Team will hopefully be getting a mention tonight on KXLF TV in Butte, Montana, after a phone interview with cyclist Mark Leonard. They’ll also be interviewing us when we cycle into Butte on Wednesday. Check out the 5.30pm and 10.30pm news if you’re in Montana. They’ve also posted a brief summation to their website, which can be read here.
Rob, Eoin and Donal will be representing the team at our very own booth at the Rí Rá Irish Festival in Butte this weekend. It’s organised by the Montana Gaelic Cultural Society. We’re looking forward to flying the flag for Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow at the event! With thanks to Patrice and Monica. More details of the event here: http://www.mtgaelic.org/Festival1.html
Two online papers have also been kind enough to do articles on the Cycle.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/sports/outdoors/s_692797.html

We’d also like to say a huge thank you to the Salish Lodge and Spa, Snoqualmie WA, The AmeriStay Inn and Suites, Moses Lake WA, Stardust Motel, Wallace ID, and the Mountain Valley Inn, Missoula MT, where we are staying as I write this. All of these places were kind enough to give the team some form of free accommodation. Without the the generousity of these people, and more to come, the Cycle may not have been possible. Thank you!
