Three kids, three bikes, one epic adventure
In Summer of 2014, Aileen Bui, Anthony Bui, and Hannah Pham, dubbed “Healthnuts & Handlebars,” will be embarking on a 4,000 mile journey across the United States by bicycle. Though they have only just learned to change their flat tires and haven’t biked more than 50 miles consecutively, they plan to complete the journey without any vehicle support. Their relative lack of experience as cyclists is what makes their journey especially remarkable. They grew up in economically challenged communities, where succeeding meant defying expectations, and that is exactly what they have been doing to get where they are, through college and on their way to achieve their dreams of becoming healthcare professionals. With this bike trip, they hope to continue defying expectations and combine their passions for adventure and traveling with their commitment to serving their community.
