Precious, the bicycle, and Janeen, the rider, will be cruising through America on a cross country ride to raise money for Livestrong via Team Fatty. Dreamt up as a promotional stunt by a New York Internet marketing firm to showcase some nifty technology, the Specialized bike will be rigged with all sorts of sensors. As it travels along, those sensors will convey the bike’s feelings via Twitter along with showing real time progress and metrics (speed, distance, wind, roadkill, etc.) on the website, yesiamprecious.com.
As of this posting, Precious and Janeen are sleeping at The Breaks Campground in Haysi, VA.
