Your donation will provide bicycles that change lives.

I'm leaving in the Fall of 2023 to do the longest bike trip I've ever done, a total of TBD miles and want it to be more than a bike trip but something that can help people. The World Bicycle Relief has done and continues to do amazing work for people all over the world by creating a means of transportation for people who really need it. A bicycle for these people in many cases allows them to get to work or even get water without having to walk for many miles. It can save them time and allow them to do other things that can make their lives better. Yes, a bicycle can do this. 

I'm planning on taking 6 weeks to do this trip where I'll be flying down to the Florida Keys and biking back home on the new Eastern Divide Trail. It's a route that's about 50%-60% on gravel roads and the remaining on paved roads. Go here for more information on the Eastern Divide  Trail:

I believe in the Power of Bicycles and their ability to change the world. Please consider supporting my personal fundraising efforts to help mobilize individuals in rural developing countries. Just $165 helps put a brand new bike in the field and forever changes the trajectory of an individual's life.

Spread the word by sharing this page with others who may want to donate to help individuals challenged by distance. 

Thank you for your support!
