After Georgia, our next state of cycling was South Carolina. We started on a great note – an off day! And Bob and Sadie drove down to spend the off day with me and have dinner with friends in Beaufort! In a state with Hilton Head, Beaufort and Charleston, what was not to like? We would soon see.

Welcome to week one of my 2,500 mile ride I call Cycling for Good! This week I ride to benefit Canine Assistants.
Each week, I’m riding in honor of someone who inspires me and others to make the world around us a better place. We all have heroes. Mine are my brother James, and my sister-in-law Paula. This week, I ride in their honor and to raise funds for Canine Assistants. You can read their story and you’ll have a chance to make a difference, too.
A Love Affair Begins
I love to ride my bicycle and a good cycling tour! Few things compare to a beautiful day of riding through the rolling hills of North Georgia, endorphins surging, with a cool breeze blowing across your face; it’s pure, unadulterated joy! Add that to my fascination with epic journeys and a cross country cycling tour quickly earned a spot on my personal challenge list.
