Austin couple to start 6 week bike tour to raise money for Austin-based immigrant shelter
Posted Sep 09 2010 12:29pm
This week, I got a message from Alice Gray and Lyon Graulty, an Austin couple who will be beginning a 1000 mile, 6 week bike tour that aims to raise money for Posada Esperanza, an Austin-based shelter for immigrant women and their children.
Neither Alice nor Lyon is a “bicycle buff,” nor have they completed a training regimen for the trek. They’ve been too busy working full time–Alice placing college students in foreign study programs and Lyon as a touring musician. They figure their first week riding from Seattle out to the coast will be their first real week of training.
