Exercise Compassion will be a bike ride around the lower 48 states
while emphasizing that being vegan is simple.
The idea for this trip began one afternoon as my partner and I were leaving Farm
Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York. As we drove down the gravel path leaving
the sanctuary we saw Gene Baur (cofounder of Farm Sanctuary) riding a bike toward
the sanctuary. I began to wonder how far Gene had just ridden, if anyone at the
sanctuary rides to and from town for supplies or food. This gave me the idea
to ride from Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York to Farm Sanctuary in Orland,
Later on while discussing the trip with friends I thought it would be a bolder
accomplishment to ride to as many animal sanctuaries and vegan businesses as
possible. Everyone agreed it was a great idea and I threw out some names for
the trip. Exercise Compassion stuck. After all this will be an exercise of just
about every definition.
If anyone has a suggestion, would like to give support, or just wants to say
