In 2000, I connived a plan to ride my bike across America. I rode from San Diego, CA to Wilmington, NC in roughly 57 days. My awesome wife Rhonda was my SAG queen!!! I did it as a fundraiser for a youth program that I was working with then.
I've been in the mood to do something big again. Obviously to raise funds for World Bicycle Relief. I believe in what the organization does.
Having a family, house, job etc makes it difficult to get away for two months for a huge adventure. I considered riding the entire Blue Ridge Parkway. I've done it before, and will probably do it again, but the time is not right.
So, what to do? And then:
The Pisgah MTB Adventure Race.
It's a no brainer. It's in my backyard, it's a huge challenge, logistics are taken care of for me. Perfect.
So, in October of this year, I plan to race this stage race.
But the bigger challenge for is to raise $5000 before the end of the race.... I think it can be done.

Have a great day.
