TOUR DE BADNESS
About Tour De Badness
Never in a million years would the thought occur to travel on a bicycle throughout the country for a cause…correction 6 causes. But it is now an obsession. Saving the world one mile at a time. Clyde Grant and myself Bevin Biggers, will be cycling from Texas to New York (Mad Decent Block Party) to raise money for 6 causes July 2013. To make helping the community a necessity to everyone, not just for a resume. It started by my urge to bike to SXSW in Austin,Texas. A friend of mine said, don’t do it just to do it. I went home and sketched up a lot of causes and could not break it down. I therefore kept 6 causes. The first ride was hard, it being my first long distance bike ride, and I did not know what the heck I was doing. I eventually did it in March of 2012, with SAG driver Renee Jonard and biking partner Mutulu Kafele. I felt filled and accomplished. Got some coverage, but it did not spread to the world as I would have liked it to. So I chose to make it 20 times more intense, with higher goals. New
York has a Mad Decent Block Party, and so to keep tradition the destination is Mad Decent Block Party.
The world that we live in is shared by 7 billion people. Roughly 100 million people in the world are homeless, 7.6 million people die every year from cancer, 17.3 million people every year die from Cardio Vascular Diseases, and approximately 925 million people are malnourished in the world. No one should ever have to be faced with this alone, and no one deserves to not get the help that they need. This is everyone’s world. Every artist should be able to build their dreams up, no matter who they are. Abuse ends now. With Clyde and Bevin being healthy with two legs, drastic measures will be taken to help people get what they deserve. Keep our world precious, keep our world in peace, save the lives of everyone’s neighbor.
