The last day of the 28 day, 2800 mile ride to St. Pete for the 28 million currently battling cancer today! It’s been a long journey but a very rewarding one at the same time.
Left from The Villages today and headed south towards St. Petersburg, our final destination. Just a little over 100 miles today…finished [...]

Today we headed west from Titusville on our way back across Florida to get closer to that 2800 mile mark!  It was of course another great day in Florida for biking, even had the opportunity to bike a few miles in the Orlando area with a classmate from West Point.  We finished the ride today [...]

Headed SE into the wind but I was able to cover 105 miles from St. Augustine to Titusville before days end with 6 ½ hours in the saddle.  The ride along the Atlantic Ocean was very scenic ride…shared a photo on Twitter today because everyone should experience the beauty of the ocean.
Later in the afternoon, we stopped [...]

Day 25 on the ride and as usual the Florida weather holds true to their image!  Another warm sunny day…slightly cooler than yesterday.   
We headed out this morning from the west side of Gainesville but before we left the hotel we had a chance to meet Bobbi Rawlins.  She works at the hotel and was [...]

Today is day 24 of the 2800 mile ride, but only day 23 of riding.  We’ve taken one rest day back in Texas and still pushing onto to St. Pete.  We left Tallahassee this morning and the weather was a little overcast this morning, but warm.  The fog burnt off rapidly and by 11:00am it [...]

We are getting closer each day to completing this ride, today we started out from Port St. Joe, FL.  The weather was absolutely beautiful today, temps were in the mid 80’s and the wind direction for the most part was in my favor.  We left the hotel a little later than normal, needed to make [...]

Groundhog Day number 22!  Same process once again, just different scenery!  Today we started the ride from Niceville, FL and headed south towards Mexico Beach.  Really nice day outside with some warmth from the sun but it was a tough day on the bike as the winds continue to be the worst enemy!  Didn’t make [...]

WOW!  Two-thirds into the trip and on the downhill slope, just wish I could say the same for the roads!  It was another beautiful day outside, temperatures not too cold with blue skies.  The only real issue was once again there were no shoulders on the road to ride so at times it made it a [...]

A beautiful ride through Mississippi today with the only exception being the roads!!  For most of the trip, we had no shoulder to ride on and believe me the truckers take no exception to that!  We found most of the people here in Mississippi to be very friendly and accommodating, with lots of honks and [...]
