    Thx for this wierd place...looks like a neat-o place to cycle by whenever we puff up and down the hills of Seattle.

    I'd participate *IF* my leg could be during the brief non-cold season here. I'm in Vermont, within reasonable long-ride distance of Canada or New York state.

    It's a great idea, since I imagine that you're going into summer and probably have more rides going on at the moment = more opportunities to pass the thing along.

    Hmm - I'm going to Japan in February. Anybody there? Oh - and DH will be heading back to Austin, Texas later next year if that is of any use. I might even go with him this time...

    Aye! If someone were to mail me "the thing" I could take it for a ride around Oslo, photograph it somewhere scenic, and ship it on to the next one.

    I love all this talk about "the thing", it makes it sound all mysterious and corny at the same time

    Thats a fantastic idea! Not just passing *it* on...but showing it a good time too!
    I like the idea of a cycling gnome-lol and it could travel with guestbook or journal of sorts where each could sign and write about the adventures of the *thing*!

    Great idea! Add me in from central Maryland (easy to volunteer, knowing there are several of us in the area, making for shorter rides to the next person!).

    In the geocaching/Flat Stanley mode, the "thing" could be something each person adds to without adding much actual weight - a notebook for a short ride report, a cheap backpack to slap a patch on, a frame pump to add a sticker to, etc.

    Aye! Count me in too! I'm here in Atlanta, along with several others. I'd have to wait for spring or later, tho as I'm recovering from an injury.

    This sounds so cool!

    Maybe we can ask Susan or another TE person if we could have blogspace, or at least sanction a specific thread, just for this project?

    The blog could have a map, gps locator (where participants can upload coordinates? Using a google app, perhaps?) ability to load photos, and area for participants to blog in.

    I think some of these trips should be concurrent. That way, all four (or five, or eight) can be tracked at once, and people can "hop on" or off depending on whether an "it" is coming through their area.

    How about "it" be a buff, or a big white bandana that people can sign?
    I can do five more miles.

    I'll be on Maui in early March, and could transport 'the thing' to Seattle. We plan to ride while on Maui, so I could show it a fun time.

    I'll volunteer too for later when the warmer weather hits here again. Perhaps a link up with the New Englanders can be arranged. Being in Niagara County New York I could get it over the border to Canada, or bring it over to the US side. Could take some pics with the Falls as a backdrop!

    That's easy. Someone pick "a thing", start a thread

    A link to this thread on the OP would be nice. Take a ride with IT. Offer to meet or send IT to another TE'er.

    I think a buff or bandana is a wonderful idea

    I'm currently working on making a "flat stanley" for my little family charity cycling team. I could make a few TE ones at the same time. Waiting on some supplies so may take a couple weeks. But I'd be happy to do that and send a few around to start on their journeys.

    I'll post a pic of my family one when it is done and you can see what you all think.

    Very cute idea. I'd definitely join in and could help out here in MD where I may not be needed, or in Pittsburgh where my family lives.
    You too can help me fight cancer, and get a lovely cookbook for your very own! My team's cookbook is for sale Click here to order. Proceeds go to our team's fundraising for the Philly Livestrong Challenge!
