Video: Cyclists Ride Across the U.S. Collecting Trash as They Go

In this video, we join friends Seth Orme and Abby Taylor as they set off across the U.S. by bike, riding from Georgia to Washington State. But, this wasn’t just an amazing way to see the country, but it was also a way for the two riders to leave their mark as they went. Their route took them through a number of national forests, scenic byways, and campgrounds, where they hosted trash clean-ups and conservation events as they went. The entire trip took five months to complete, during which Seth and Abby managed to pick up more than 2100 pounds (952 kg) of trash. Check out their story below.
