RhythmWalk for Zimbabwe, my journey along the Pacific Crest Trail that started on April 27th, has become RhythmRIDE for Zimbabwe, a 2000-mile cycle tour that will end in October of 2004. From Canada to Mexico, through Washington, Oregon and California, I am raising awareness and monetary support for our struggling friends in Zimbabwe, sharing their beautiful Shona music along the way.
