It’s said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. For Ryan Bowen, it began with a single thought: I’m too broke to fly from Los Angeles to D.C. for the inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama. Undeterred, Bowen decided to bike across the country. And he’s made it. The Takeaway is joined by writer and cycling activist Ryan Bowen.
