What is BardCycle?

The inaugural post on the BardCycle Blog!

Given that I have a lot of prep work to do and a lot of blog posts to come, I’ll keep this one short and sweet.

What is BardCycle?

BardCycle is a cross-country tour of American Shakespeare via bicycle.

When is BardCycle?

I will set off from Richmond Va on June first, the opening night of the Richmond Shakespeare Festival at Agecroft Hall.

Who is BardCycle?

My name is Mac MacDaniel. I’m a Shakespeare educator and the dramaturgy coordinator for Quill Theatre.

Where is BardCycle?

My route will start in Richmond VA at Agecroft Hall and head west along the Trans America Bike Trail to San Francisco. From there I will turn north up the pacific coast and end my journey at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland.

Why is BardCycle?

As a person who loves Shakespeare, cycling, and traveling I wanted to ride my bike across the country and explore America while visiting Shakespeare theatres along the way.

Thanks to the generous support of my sponsors, Quill Theatre and WildCard Toys.
