Within a week, I will finish my 2,500 Atlantic Coast Cycling tour and Cycling for Good. Over the next week, in lieu of my “regular” schedule, I’ll remind you of the people who inspired my ride – both before and during my adventure. So hang in there – lots of posts to come, and without predictable internet, they may come in spurts!
Ride For Good
Welcome to week six of my 2,500 mile bike ride I’m calling Cycling for Good. This week I’m riding in honor of Andrew Powell and his fight to recover from devastating injuries and to return to running and triathlon. Learn about AP and the Challenged Athlete Foundation. And you’ll have a chance to make a difference, too.
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.
I have a lot to gain from cycling the Atlantic Coast. I’ll get more fit. Have a challenge and the adventure of a lifetime. See the country on bike time. Meet great people. But I want to do more.
I want to take this opportunity to raise awareness and funds for some charities that mean a lot to people who have made life better for me and others around them.
Each week, I’ll ride in honor of someone who has inspired me. I’ll introduce you to them and tell you about a charity that is their cause. And you’ll have a chance to make a difference.
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.
