Acoustic Basement founder Brian Marquis has announced plans to tour across the Northeast United States this fall. But this will be no ordinary tour: Marquis will travel exclusively via bicycle, covering an estimated 1,200 miles over two weeks’ worth of shows. Why is he doing it, you ask?

“[I am trying] to bring attention to Spaghetti Arms, an organization which aims to raise awareness, fundraise and support research to end Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy—the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in early childhood.,” he says in a statement.

Dates for the “A Bike & And A Mic For A Cure” tour are listed below. Give ’em a once-over while streaming his new covers EP, I Miss The 90’s, out now on Equal Vision:
