In June of 2006, brothers Pearson and Peter Constantino were planning a trek across the US via Route 20 when Pearson was struck by a hit and run driver. After Pearson’s long recovery, the brothers again have plans in the fall of 2008 to make the trip cross-country on US Route 20, a trip they plan to document by film. It will take place over a 50-day period in August and September. The trip, and their film, is called “The Long Bike Back,” and will detail the trip on US 20 and raise awareness of road safety.
A fundraiser will be held on May 15, 2008 at Creekside Books & Coffee in Skaneateles, New York. There will also be a screening of the film trailer at this event. Details for this fundraiser can be found here.
