New Belgium Brewing, maker of Fat Tire Amber Ale, is sponsoring Van Duzer’s travels as part of its Team Wonderbike initiatives (http://www.newbelgium.com/team-wonderbike). Team Wonderbike was created by New Belgium to inspire and encourage folks to use their bike instead of their car as often as possible. Team Wonderbike membership is currently 15,000 strong, with more to join as Van Duzer’s inspirational trek will inevitably get people to thinking, “If he can ride across the country, I can ride to work!”
