Drew Echelberger is a 29 year old adventure cyclist, writer, glassblower & rapper from Louisville Kentucky.  The eccentric aspiring novelist, & travel show host has been making & hiding marbles all across the country throughout the course of the 37,000+ Miles  (over 1.5 x around the planet earth) 30 states & 3 countries he has pedaled though solo & self supported over the past 5 years.  

Two weeks ago he celebrated 1,000 days on the road since last leaving home.  Last month I had the pleasure of sitting down with him on a camping trip to hear him read some poetry, do his best Johnny Cash impression, ramble on about bicycle advocacy politics, “Leaving Monday”, sensory deprivation tanks, secret beaches, sky islands, & many other obscure rabbit hole bike related tangents.  He describes his trip as “If Anthony Bourdain & Hunter S Thompson went on a bike tour, this would be it”.  

Later today he will release the clues to a newly hidden marble in honor of his 1,000 days on the road, & in a few weeks he will host a “How To Do A Bike Overnight” presentation on behalf of the Adventure Cycling Association.  Follow along on his profile @NightmareTheRustyRobot to stay up to date on all latest & most recent adventures he’s got cookin up in the Austin area for now & in anticipation for that faithful Monday when he finally does get back out there on that long open road.  Rumor has it this time he’s heading for the Caribbean.
