It is day No. 7 for Team YogaSlackers’ Y.E.S. outdoors-sports and yoga tour of Colorado. What’s that, you ask? Beginning last week, the group of American yoga instructors and amateur athletes — a.k.a. the YogaSlackers — began an unsupported bike tour of Colorado to promote “awareness through adventure.”
The tour — called “Yoga. Extreme. Sustainability,” or Y.E.S. — kicked off at the Teva Mountain Games in Vail. It includes more than a dozen stops around the state to participate in events ranging from mountain bike races to yoga clinics.
The four-person group is hauling gear in bike trailers and pedaling more than 1,000 miles over 30 days. They are giving yoga clinics and community slideshows about climate change, social entrepreneurship, and wind energy.
For the trip, YogaSlackers is partnering with Beads of Courage, a non-profit organization that supports children coping with serious illness. You can follow the Y.E.S. Tour crew as they bike across the state via live SPOT satellite tracking here: http://www.yestour.yogaslackers.com
Update: The YogaSlackers completed the Y.E.S. Tour on July 11, 2009, with more than 1,000 miles put on the roads of Colo. Congrats!
