Ever wonder why someone would put fake animals on their bike when doing a cross-country bike tour? Especially when every ounce counts….Time to introduce to you Tim’s animal friends who are along this ride with us!
Goosey rides on the back of Tim’s bike. Goosey is a college-link to friends from the past. He gets sent around to friends that are going on big trips. He’s been all around the world and most recently he’s been with Tim on the Appliachian trail, the Long Trail, skiing in Colorado and now here.
Cubby bear is recent acquirement. He rides on the front of Tim’s bike. Tim’s family are avid Chicago Cubs fans. Though this is actually a monkey, Tim calls it a bear. Tim’s been known to carry monkeys on his back while he does extended hikes (six months long.) His collection: Super Funk Monk Sr (who’s retired,) Super Funk Monk Jr (who hitchhiked to France for a French maid) and now, Cubby bear.
