    3 Jun 2017

    After 2 days, I've ridden 76 miles. Putting me well ahead of the 22 Miles Per Day needed to hit my goal. The weekend is here so I can make an even bigger dent in this thing. My distance ranks me 9th in Colorado and 197th in the country. Not a bad start.

    Only 584 miles to go! 🚴

  • 1st Ride of June
    1 Jun 2017

    My first ride of this challenge was in to work. It was tough. My legs were tired and I felt like I was going slow (because I was going slow). Probably should have ridden more in May to prepare for this trip. I'm sure this will get easier as the month goes on.

    Only 646 more miles to go ...

  • Thanks
    10 May 2017

    Thanks for all who have donated. I'm always surprised and humbled by the generosity of those who help me out with these things.

    Currently, I'm ranked 5th in Colorado fund-raising :-)

    I decided to increase my mileage goal to match the $560 donated so far.

    I just hit $500 to fight kids' cancer! Thank you so much for your support.

    Posted 103 days ago
  • 4 Apr 2017

    This June, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

    Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children’s Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

    Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.

    Eric
