go get ’em!

we got this e-mail from Eleanore this morning, and we have to say we agree:

I received a Milwaukee ES hoodie for Valentine’s Day, from obviously
someone that loves me very, very much…better than a diamond any day!

we couldn’t agree more.

this is one interesting woman. listen up! she’s going on an cycling journey through China, Mongolia and Russia to raise awareness and funds for gender equality. we’re sending her some softshell knicks and merino wool baselayers to stay warm so she can take care of business in comfort. Soma is providing a Saga frame, and Mountain Harware has also provided a sponsorship. here is their blurb about her trip on their press release:

Beginning in April 2010, Eleanor, a photographer who has been living and working in China, will attempt to complete a year-long, solo bicycle journey around Asia while raising money and awareness for two charities, Girls Education International and Stepping Stones China. She plans to document the journey through China, Mongolia and Russia through her photography, a book, and eventually, a cycling guidebook. Eleanor was inspired to raise awareness for female equality after noticing the obvious differences in rights between the male and female genders, and the disadvantages most females face living in China.
