"What's up deCycles! This is Max, Erin, and Keagan and we've been looking at all your pictures and getting insanely jealous. Most of you don't know us, but we are your brothers and sister of the road. Ask Bob about the time Max and Keagan wore their airbrush t-shirts over their deCycles ones in 2009! We hope you're all having a great time in New England, pedaling away through those green hills. deCycles has helped define all of our lives and we hope it does the same for you. So battle through those 6 am wake-ups and don't get discouraged when you get your 4th flat of the day. As Erin Boyle said, "deCycles has made me who I am, and for that I am eternally grateful." Ride like the wind!"
Max, Erin, and Keagan

"I was out for a morning run along the Charles River in Boston this morning and in a truly spectacular coincidence, I was passed by the deCycles crew on their way out of town. It was such a pleasure to see Norm, Cricket, Bob and Robin again, to re-live memories from our incredible trip more than a decade ago and to hear stories of other former deCycles! Good luck on the rest of the journey!!"
