I am Kevin McCarley from Florence, Alabama USA. I will be riding my Trek bike from Turin to Barcelona over 22 days starting Aug 31st. I have named the bike Marco. I have made social media pages(FB and Instagram) for Marco (Where is Marco?) but will not publish them until my trip. I would like to give the bike to another traveler when I am done under 3 conditions, one, this person travels more than three days on it, two, their trip experiences and pics are posted to the media pages which I will leave open to public post, and 3, they must return the bike to any bike shop in Europe for the next travler to borrow. My hope is to see people from all cultures and various countries ride Marco and for all riders and everyone to see his travels and adventures, maybe for years to come. I beleive this would be an extraordinary way to connect diverse strangers in a cool yet freindly manner. I realize for this dream to work I would need the cooperation of a bike shop in Barcelona that has connections in other countries, preferably a Trek shop. Perhaps anyone that wants to ride Marco would be required to leave a refundable deposit to prevent theft, and once they leave it at another shop the previous shop will be contacted to refund the deposit and the journey will start all over again for the next person. This is only an idea but if anyone knows anyone in Barcelona on Warmshowers that they beleive would be interested in helping or connecting me with the right people I would appreciate it!
