Students Hope to Bike Off Debt
Mar. 11, 2005
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) _ Two seniors at the University of New Hampshire are putting the marketing skills they learned in college to work to try and pay off the $20,000 they each owe in student loans.
Josh Hutchins and Marc Hall, both 22, have requested bids of $40,000 or more on eBay to bicycle from New Hampshire to Florida and back promoting the winning bidder's name or product.
They'll do it media interviews, on their clothes and on their bike helmets.
The two expect the ride to take as long as two months. Bidding on the offer ends at 3 p.m. Friday.
They also promise to donate some of the proceeds to charity.
