We've officially reached the halfway point across the country. So many things have happened, it's hard to keep track and keep up with my blog. In the last two weeks we've covered two state lines. We crossed from Arkansas to Oklahoma and then Oklahoma to Kansas.
Kansas lived up to most expectations and then some. Our hosts have been generous and welcoming. We had a pleasant ride into Wichita. We also had a unique opportunity to share dinner with our hosts and some the local homeless population in a park downtown. It was a great opportunity to see yet another perspective of the ways that affordable housing impacts communities differently.
It's build days like these that snap me back into reality to realize why this trip is so important. Less than 48 hours of our time can be a catalyst for change in a small town that rarely sees a newcomer for months at a time. On a large scale, Bike & Build, is doing this all over the country and touching numerous communities along the way.
