Bicycle Astronomy

This is a group dedicated to pursuing amateur astronomy using bicycles as a means to get to sites for viewing. You don't need to own your own telescope, but the more the merrier. You should of course own a bicycle, and be interested in amateur astronomy. Anyone with an interest in astronomy will be welcomed from neophytes to experts.
