Rod and Linda's Cross-Country Bike Ride
Rod and I are in our 60's
and are planning a cross-country bike ride starting in June and finishing either in late
July or early August. I lost my mother (Ruth) to cancer and Rod lost his
younger sister (Tammi) to cancer. We would like to dedicate our ride to all
those that have been victimized by the disease. My sister and her husband will
be our Support and Gear (SAG) support on the trip. They will not be riding
bikes with us; they will have a camper and be our support vehichle. Of course,
my sister and I share that we both lost our mother. We have set a goal of raising 10,000 dollars for our journey.
We plan to take the northern route across the US. We will start in Astoria,
Oregon, then travel through Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, 2 days
in Canada, New York, Vermont and New Hampshire. Our route will bring us right by our home town of Sturgis, SD for a few days R
& R before we head out to complete our journey. We have mapped it out
and it will be around 3800 miles total.
Thank you for your support!
