First trip update!

Okay everybody. I apologize if you were counting on this site for updates on my trip from Maine to Seattle for MS. Until last night (after the purchase of this lovely iPhone) I was unable to access the Internet to tell you all how it is going.

We have already covered 1,000 miles. But the larger feat is that BIKEtheUSforMS has raised over $213,000 for multiple sclerosis this year. Thank you to all that have contributes!

On to the trip itself, which will have more detailed coverage following this hopefully brief update.

The trip started out strong. The first day went off without a hitch and we all had a good time getting to know one another in Bar Harbor.

Then we quickly met the worst of our hardships with both heavy rains and tall mountain passes in the first week. But we are all stronger for it and it has been no comparison to the struggles of MS. So we are proud to help the cause.
After the mountains went in the rear view, the weather has shaped up and so has our fitness.

I’ll share some stories later, but for now, here are some pictures.

About jasonbikestheusforms

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.
