Introducing Leave it On the Road
Leave it on the Road and the Vanilla family!

With all the benefit rides that happen year after year, what’s stopping people from doing their own? Save yourself from the swarm of people you don’t know, call a friend, plan a ride and hit up some sponsors. That’s exactly what Michael Tabtabai and Andrew Hudon did.

Leave It On The Road ride starts Monday, June 17 and goes 3465 miles in 24 days from Oregon to Massachusetts.  Along the way and through fundraising, Michael and Andrew are hoping to raise $52k for the Colon Cancer Alliance. All the background info can be found at Leave it on the Road.

Brenton Salo: Amanda Sundvor is Going to High Five America

Photo by Brenton Salo

The last time Amanda and I hung out together, wait, I mean really hung out together… I was down a couple hundred bucks and smelled like Sassy’s. Now, the queen of the high five and good times is heading out into the great United States of ‘Merica for Chrome in that camper.

So, when we hang out again, you won’t be sick the next morning right, Amanda?
