BENEFITING: KYLE PEASE FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Mar 03, 2016
My hope is to raise $100 a mile or $29,000 as the ride is about 2900 miles across the country. Basically, if you pledge a penny a mile - you're in for $29 or round it to $30. If you'd like, pledge this amount as a one time, 3 months, 6 months or a year and you'll help the Kyle Pease Foundation continue their mission of pairing able bodied and physically challanged atheletes to complete triathalons, duathalons and full or half marathons as well as 5k or 10k runs.
About the cross country tour
Bubba's Pampered Pedlers: Coast 2 Coast 2017 (http://www.bubbaspamperedpedalers.com/coast-2-coast)
I'm riding from March 3, 2017—-April 24, 2017 from San Diego, CA and ending in St. Augustine, FL. Daily mileage varies but total is about 2,900.
I will be enjoying the vastness of this wonderful country from the seat of my bicycle which will allow you to explore, see, hear, smell, taste, and enjoy this country like you can no other way. Yes, bicycling Coast 2 Coast will be an adventure which will change my life (and maybe my waist line). But this is biking across country without the hassle. On this tour, they cook - a chef on staff, Breakfasts & Dinners, morning coffee, afternoon snacks, daily SAG..., pamper - put up your tent, inflate your air mattress, haul your gear. You pick up your bags in the evening and put them outside your tent when you're done in the morning. Some nights are indoor camping and a few in hotels. Oh yea - and they do your laundry twice a week. All I have to do is ride my bike (@ 60 miles per ride day) with a rest day every 7-10 days - easy KPeasey, nice and easy. Mountains. Deserts. Prairies. Bayous. Citrus Groves. I'll see it all as I pedal east towards the rising sun.
I road a bike in high school many years ago, took a long break and started riding again about 10 years back (I'm retired now and spend a good bit of time riding my bikes). I've done mostly day long charity rides along with a few week long tours. I got a bug to do a cross country tour but realized that a self contained or self supported ride wasn't going to work (I guess I'm a bit too lazy). I found Bubba along the way while doing some of the week long tours and found they do a supported cross country ride/tour.
