My Story

21 Jul 2020

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! I believe this to be a great cause to fight for, even in this small way. I hope to ride a bunch and raise a bunch of funds for Childrens' Cancer Research.

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.

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.

Thank you.

  • So much gratitude
    3 Oct 2020

    I am so grateful. First, to my creator for making me so that I can still ride as I get up there in years. Second, that so many of you decided to support this noble and worthwhile cause. And third, to the organizers of GCC for creating this fundraiser which, from the looks of things, is a very effective one. Overall stats: $14,562,182.00 and 5,535,525 miles ridden...all to benefit research to help kids who are battling cancer. Thank you all.

    So much gratitude

  • The final day
    30 Sep 2020

    Today is the final day of my 2020 great cycle challenge. It’s been really, really, really a challenge. COVID-19, horrible air quality, evacuation, etc. When I see the stories of the kids that this charity benefits though, it’s all worth it. I would do it all over again! If you haven’t, please make a contribution today!

    27 Sep 2020

    While we were evacuated, I got a few rides in at the coast! I am so glad we got into some clean air to breathe. I'm going to get the miles in in September.

  • A couple of good rides for the cause.
    12 Sep 2020

    Well, the air has not been the best (my prayers go out to all the firefighters and support crews and their families), but I managed to log rides 4 & 5 yesterday and today.Riding out southeast of Exeter into the foothills was just otherworldly as the smoke from the SQF and Creek fires made it dark in the daytime. Air quality monitors had it at a 3 (of 5) so it may not have been the wisest thing, but my brain needed the endorphins!

    A couple of good rides for the cause.

  • Again you force my hand!
    10 Sep 2020

    I feel so fortunate in my friends and colleagues! I HAVE to raise my goal (with this air quality I don't feel comfortable adding more miles right now...we'll see). THANK YOU ALL for your contributions. Air permitting I think I can get back on the road tomorrow. We're on our way to $3,000.00 for Children's Cancer Research Foundation. How cool!!

    Again you force my hand!

  • "Heart of Oak..." GCC 2020 #3
    5 Sep 2020

    Well it's very smoky up here in Three Rivers. I'm sad about the Castle Fire which is decimating the Golden Trout Wilderness. But the show must go on for the kids, so I got a nice 31 miles in before the heat got too bad. Behind me in this photo is a beautiful Valley Oak on North Fork drive.

    You're all doing so well donating that I raised my goal to $2500. So it's only fair that I raise my riding goal to 250 miles! Yay. Keep it coming and I'll ride my legs off for this cause!

  • Underway!
    1 Sep 2020

    Well, I started this morning with a 13 miler before work. The air was not good, but the temperature was nice and the north fork looked beautiful. I hope you’ll consider contributing.

    Underway!
