Thank you for blogging about the 2008 Equal Parenting Bike Trek. It was easy to pick up your frustration in the post and we are sorry that it caused this.

From your above post:

"I'm not entirely sure what this group does and I've really scoured the website, but it appears to be a Father's Rights organization. [Mission statements people. If you're going to have a ride, an outsider should be able to tell what you're raising money for or awareness of - something like "The Rabies Awareness Pro-Am Fun Run Race For the Cure."]"

We are not a father's right organization. We advocate for children's rights during/after a divorce.

On the 2008 Main Page for this event it states, "A grueling 758 mile cycling trek to raise awareness of a child's fundamental right to be loved, guided, educated and nurtured equally by both fit and willing parents."

From your above post:

"They'll be riding from Lansing, Michigan to Washington, DC where they will do some undefined activities."

In Lansing, MI we are having a departure celebration which will include an American Indian Shared Parenting Organization performing Pow-wows of song and dance. The media will be present and we will discuss children's rights and the purpose of this 758 mile cycling trek.

We will travel through MI, OH, PA, MD, and into D.C. During that time we will be promoting awareness of children's rights during stops. Cyclists in each state will be joining the five cyclists for brief periods as a way of showing support.

Once in D.C. the cyclists will give speeches and receive awards at the Family Preservation Festival www.dcrally2008.com
