Spring Training

My training is going incredibly well, as is my fundraising. Once I mail in some checks I’ve been given, I should be up around $2700 and 62% of the way to my goal of $4,295. Thank you to all who have donated. I like to say that 400,000 Americans and their families thank you!

This past week I got to ride in the Shenandoah Valley and it was beautiful riding. 65-80 degrees the entire week and it was important to change my scenery while trying to rack up the miles.

Always take the business route.

I’m up to 350 miles of the suggested 500 miles before crossing the country. My goal has been to hit 1,000 miles. In three weeks I’ll ride the entirety of Skyline Drive down in the Blue Ridge. And then my roommate and I will do the 100 Miles of Nowhere that Fatcyclist.com puts on. On top of that, I have the best class schedule for putting in some serious mileage. So training is going well and shows no signs of slowing down. My final test will be to ride out to some family friends’ house 75 miles west. I’ll stay there the night and come back home. After that, I’ll be more than ready for Memorial Day to come.

Our departure is just two months away and I could not be more excited. I am proud to join the fight against MS.

I am a college student from Eldersburg, MD. I am biking from Maine to Seattle, WA to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. The goal is to help end MS for all those affected. Who knew a bicycle could be such a good tool for this cause? This blog will serve as a log of the adventures of my training and my actual journey next summer.
