I'm Riding For

Shawn Mintek

Shawn (my big brother) died from cancer, but he was about 63 years old ... (not a childhood cancer, although he always had some child-like attributes). As a young man, he rode a bike most of the way from Chicago to Seattle, using the passage through Canada, and taught me a lot about adventure.

My Story

17 Jul 2020

I dream of riding through the pandemic, to see my daughter (in Seattle), and then my son (in Los Angeles), and then return to my home in Allegan, Michigan to hug my wife and get in line to vote on 11/03 ... I calculated roughly 5,400 miles, in about 90 days -- so, average 60 miles per day. September usually has just 30 days, so if I don't take any rest-days that month, I could log 1,800 September miles.

Launch-date is still being negotiated, but currently I hope to take-off on Tuesday, morning 8/04/2020.

Thank you.

    If I can get all my new toys to work, I will be trying to record parts of my Big Ride using a GoPro, and send clips to the cloud along the way. I have much to learn !
