My Story

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.

    It's been crazy busy lately and with work picking up the last few miles have become more challenging, but here's an update from yesterday.

    By most metrics you would think we're doing great, and truth is WE are doing FANTASTIC.

    Demons in my head however are yelling at me to just give up, it's too hot outside and there's little if any chance that I'll reach the stated goals in the remaining 6 days. And no way in HELL that I'll reach the non stated ones at all.

    Be that as it may, I'm not a quitter, and imma give it my all to get as far as I can.

    FACT, throughout the Challenge WE have busted goal after goal after goal, so we have already accomplished tremendously beyond what any of us involved thought we could, I'm quite pleased so far.

    I still wouldn't mind busting more goals though🤷‍♂️, that's just who I am.

    I am going to try & do a little riding today if work permits, tomorrow is shut, Thursday is an option but not till after 1300, when the sun is at its worse or when the storms are about to start.

    Fri-Sun is a toss up, but I'll continue and will go as far as I can, I ain't about giving up.

    Thanks for the support this far. Y'all are awesome.

  • Time for a serious update Part I
    19 Jun 2019

    Over the last few days I’ve been avoiding sitting down to write the story about the bike ride I did last Saturday June 15, partly because to be honest I’ve been tired. But also a mix of emotions over how to tell the story without coming across as boastful, as well as adequately portraying how monumental the challenge and the accomplishment was.

    With that in mind, I'm going to give it my best shot. Fair warning, this post is going to be long, I hope you find it worthy of your time.

    Over the duration of my participation on The Great Cycle Challenge I have witnessed events and activities that I can't quite explain how humbling, overwhelming, motivating, challenging, and satisfying have been.

    From the first sponsor who believed in me, to the latest one, each has shown a level of moral support; Which whether you knew it or not has fueled this passion and has encouraged me to continuously push the boundaries of what I previously thought unimaginable.

    Each time we reach a fundraiser goal I have raised it, for one because the need is great, but for two, because never having done one of these, I had no idea of what y'all where willing to do with a little motivation.

    Fueled by your support, motivated by the cause, and with the hopes of making a real difference in these kids lives I have attempted some rides that have tested every fiber in my body and challenged my determination in more ways than one throughout.

    Coming out of “Kick Cancer's Butt Day" with a record fund raiser pot of over $7K was exhilarating, and in trying to “pay it back" to y’all I wanted to attempt to do a single ride that would first exceed the distance of the first ride, that second, would ideally complete the remaining 80ish miles I had left to the 300 most recently pledged, and lastly a ride that really seemed beyond reach for this unathletic, out of shape, 45 year old.

    So after doing a little soul searching, consulting with other experienced riders, I defined a route and loaded up with the supplies necessary for a Century Ride.

    Yep, when I went to bed the night of Friday, very few people (2) knew that the next morning I'd get up at 3 am to attempt to bike for 100 miles on the same day.

    The plan was to launch from home, head north for a few miles to make sure everything with the bike was in good working order since it had just had major surgery the previous night, and to ensure that by the time I got to my destination, I would have a full 100 miles, if not a little more. Then, I would head East to A1A, and ride South until the first of many possible things happened.

    I ran into mechanical problems;

    Exceeded 72.5 miles (the initial ride distance);

    Exceed 80 miles (the mileage required to complete the 30 mile pledge)

    Got to Daytona, FL.;

    Completed 100 miles (A Century Ride):

    Got to my preset Destination (a parking lot by the beach in Daytona where my rescue crew could pick me up);

    Or, crashed and/or burned at any point in between.

    It took me the best part of 10 miles to find my stride and finally get comfortable in the bike, and after 20 I was ready for my first liquid exchange and replenishment stop.

    The next 24 miles were very challenging, I was never really able to find my stride and the whole time felt like I was battling the wind. After much effort and doubt, made it to my second liquid exchange and replenishment stop.

    At this point, after about 3-30hrs on the saddle I was ready for breakfast. While I rested standing under the comfort of a gas station’s shade, I met a couple of much more experienced riders, who graciously shared some secrets to succeed during the next segments.

    19 Jun 2019

    We parted ways and I continued South, the next segment included the crossing of two bridges in Saint Augustine, one which beautiful as it is, had neither space for me to stop and take pictures, nor for a single car to go around me, what with the incoming traffic and the lack of a shoulder, I was also able to dodge a deush in a Dodge by the skin of my teeth, but beyond that, this segment was Ok, with the sun beginning to get somewhat bakey, but bearable.

    The route had few scenic views in particular over Matanzas Inlet, where everyone with a boat was having a great time.

    Made it to the third liquid exchange and replenishment stop, which again included a K gas station with nowhere to sit, and a measly shade to stand in. Turns out resting on your feet is not very relaxing and it takes a lot longer for the recovery.

    With enough food and liquid intake and outflow, I was ready for the next segment which would be in the neighborhood of 23 miles under +85F heat.

    Shortly after getting to Palm Bay the bike lane and shoulder disappear and you are forced to go on a “bike trail" which is excellent for anything but a road bike. Basically an uneven sidewalk with partial tree shade, ample tree limb derby and confusing shadows which forces you to enjoy the heat for a longer time since you have no option but you slow down.

    At about mile 74 I was in an urgent need to have a liquid exchange, when a parking lot/beach access area became visible, to get to it, I had to climb a ramp with tight switchbacks that led to the top, where the surface suddenly went from a perfect concrete path to a sugar sand road with no warning.

    As you're probably already figuring out, by the time I realized the road was a sand trap, I was already on my back with the bike still attached to my left leg. Thankfully people there were prompt to help me unlock from the bike and get up.

    After doing a little assessment, the bike was in good enough shape, but I was scraped, covered in sand, and sure that the pre existing shoulder injury would make itself unbearable to continue.

    This was a huge setback, between the fatigue, the sunburn, and the frustration of yet another fall, I started to seriously consider my options.

    While I’m cleaning myself, I looked back at the previous goals, and seemed that I had met numbers1, 2 & 7; I now had a real struggle internally because the thought of quitting was quite unsettling, but I was also experiencing a lot of frustration.

    Out of nowhere an older couple of riders stopped at the same place and we engaged in conversation, I complemented their bike tires (adequate for sand) and they asked about my outfit and bike sign.

    As I explained about the Challenge, and how I got into it and what it meant to me, my motivation started getting rekindled, just then I received an email notification saying “Congratulations you have reached your fundraising goal of $8K".

    I quickly checked to see who the donation had come from, to find out again, that it was a dear person whom surprised me tremendously (Like ALL of you really), and gave me renewed strength to try to at the very least complete 80 miles (and with that the 300) at the very best, the end goal, should my shoulder not object too terribly about either.

    The following 6-8 miles were tough; no shoulder no bike lane, and the “bike path" covered in sugar sand strategically placed in the perfect intervals to get up to speed before having to stop.

    Finally, I had it with the sand, I got on the road, and forced cars to either go around me, or get behind my parade. Noteworthy, I didn't hear one of them honk their horns at me. Maybe the headphones and loud music helped.

    When I got to Flagler Beach, I had now completed 80 miles (the 300), but things got a little worse. The road I was planning to ride had been destroyed by the last hurricane, and the gas station I was headed for my required (read, urgently needed) liquid exchange and replenishment stop, was boarded up shut.

  • Time for a serious update Part III
    19 Jun 2019

    Forced to a detour, I asked my wife to help me locate the nearest suitable pit stop that didn't require going in land or backwards.

    Long story short, the best stop was determined to be 10 miles south.

    Since I really need the supplies and relief, and there was no adequate place to do that or wait the hour or so that it would take my rescue team to come find me. We determined it was best to suck it up, and ride yet 10 more miles.

    Knowing this ride was going to be a huge personal challenge, and that I would find myself needing extra motivation, I gave in into wearing the Superhero Jersey, knowing that this kid inspired design would remind me that the struggle these little one's go through day in day out is far worse than the little discomfort and pain I'd experience through the day.

    Thinking of the little tykes that have no quit, and remembering each of you that has supported this effort along the way, carried me through the most difficult 10 miles of the ride.

    After finishing what seemed like endless 10 miles and getting to the Ormond Beach Publix, I had completed 92.4 miles.

    While figuring the logistics of going to the restroom inside, buying water and finding a safe enough place for my bike, I witnessed an older gentleman plummet through a light post, watch the light post fall almost in slow motion and nearly hitting a pedestrian, I counted my blessings, and figured myself lucky.

    In a phone conversation I coordinated my rescue crew to launch and determined that the best place to meet would still be at the original agreed upon rendezvous location. This was exactly 8 miles away.

    After about a 1hr brake, I started heading South for the last few miles.

    Met the rescue crew at mile 99 and asked them to follow me so we would cross the 100 mile mark together.

    Got through 100 miles after +9 hrs on the saddle, about 13.5 hrs after leaving the house.

    After stopping to greet fans (my wife, my kids and a random kid at the beach) and pose for the pictures the tracker had recorded exactly 101 miles.

    If anyone would’ve ever told me that sometime in the future I would convince my friends to donate money towards a charity, and that I'd be able to raise $5, I would've said you're crazy.

    If anyone would’ve ever told me that sometime in the future I would ride 70 miles in a month for a charity, I would've said you're crazy.

    Today, TOGETHER, we have raised in excess of $8000.00 and I’ve ridden 300 miles in 15 days, 100 of that in one day, and the thing that comes to mind for me to say is that this is all crazy.

    The craziest part of all, is that there's a lot of June left, and you bet I’m going to raise both goals again and will continue to put myself out of my comfort zone asking for donations, appearing on TV, riding bicycles and anything that we can think of for the cause of Children's cancer.

    So, THANK YOU for your support, THANK YOU for your donations, and since by the time you read this I would have already raised the goal and I don't expect you to give more money, do me a favor and spread this message with all your friends, and guide them to either one of my fundraisers and convince them to donate for a cause that aims to save children from an awful decease and a premature death.

    In the meantime, enjoy the video of my Century Ride below.

    Rich!

  • Murphy's Ride
    9 Jun 2019

    This was an @$$ kicker, it was difficult to get started, everything ached even after seeing the chiropractor, but I wasn't working, and I have a commitment to the kiddies and to you my generous sponsors, so ride I did.

    From the get go, nothing seemed to work right, left and locked the house 3 times before I was actually ready to go.

    TMI ALERT, skip this paragraph if you rather 🤷‍♂️. The first and most ackward challenge was my chamois. I don't know why, must have applied to much Butt'er, but as soon as I sat, it split me in half and wedged itself SO far up I could almost taste it 😖, after several pulls and readjusts, I finally found a "comfortable" place on the saddle.

    IF YOU SKIPPED, IT IS SAFE FROM HERE, next, took a turn on what I thought would be a wide smooth road, turned out that due to construction, it was a one lane road in each direction, flanked by Florida's finest orange barrel barricades.

    Next someone started spraying my with cold water, WTH? I look around in both directions yet there's nobody there, ooh cr@p, I look up.... it's Angels, angels are spraying me with water, since I'm no quitter, I peddaled harder and try to beat it, and miraculously, I did.

    Up the Wonderwood Express Bridge, I got a call I had to take, which was some exciting news, but that's all I'm saying for now, up there, I was able to look back and see the Yuge thunderstorms racing towards me, so I rushed down, and turned South on Atlantic Blvd.

    Just when I thought I had beat them, a new one popped right on top of me, giving me only enough time to seek shelter at a gas station.

    While waiting for the rain to pass, and getting ready to put a raincoat on my backpack, I discovered that both cleats on my shoes were loose, one had actually lost a screw altogether and was about to drop the other 2. That could have been a catastrophic failure depending on where/how it happened, got lucky there.

    The next segment of the ride was actually uneventful, albeit windy as heck, rode by the beach and it was turning into a pleasant afternoon.

    Stopped by a friend's house to give his wife a little advise and guidance as she's getting back on the bike again.

    When it was time to leave I said my goodbyes and was able to ride maybe a mile, when the skies just opened up, it was raining so hard and thundering so near, I had to take another brake hiding under another gas station.

    It rained and rained, and rained some more, finally all the suggestive sounds forced me to go in and use the restroom, as a thank you to the guy at the gas station, I bought batteries to replace on two of my rear red flashers.

    Eventually it stopped raining, and I rode the remaining 12 miles or so in soggy wet clothes sweat/rain/rain on very wet roads trying to keep my mouth shut to minimize the amount of wet gravel, grime and $#!+ going in my face courtesy of the front tire.

    Made it home, and according to my math, I needed one more mile to get exactly 150, so, I did the natural thing and rode one more mile😎

    The tally, 149.7, FMM (the last M is for Math) 🙄

    21 May 2019

    So after Friday's Crash Course, I was feeling a lot better and almost willing to get back on the bike, I mentioned to my wife that considering how I was feeling, I could possibly get on one of the bikes, just not any that would put weight on my shoulder, and after listening to her advise, I decided to compromise and take it easy.

    So I went on a bike ride anyway....

    Well, sort of💁‍♂️

    After 1Hr on this thing my butt was numb, but the legs did fine.

    1hr. and the equivalent of amout 15 miles.

  • Good news, bad news, & good news again!
    19 May 2019

    The Good news, I think I figured how to load video on YouTube and hence here, and expect to be able to upload better videos soon.

    The bad, in an effort to stay fit between the work mandated brakes where I'm far away from a bike for days at a time and the bike rides, in preparation for June 1st, I went in a ride Thursday night.

    I had intended to do between 15-20 miles that night to make up for the following 3 days where I'd be gone and unable to ride.

    I took the fixie pictured on another post, helmet,

    gear, Rylo 360 video camera, lights. Et al, and out I went.

    2 to 2.5 miles in however, while trying to turn the camera off, I was suddenly, briskly and roughly reminded that regardless of my riding experience, skill level, or fitness, the sidewalks are unforgiving of lapses of attention and or judgement, and that it is stronger than anyone's will.

    Fancy way of saying I ate dirt, faceplanted, and scraped my arm and knee on said sidewalk. In the trip I also banged my shoulder pretty good as well.

    The Good news again, the Dr. said nothing is broken, not my knee, not my arm, not my shoulder (although there is a fair amount of pain), and more importantly not my will.

    The fact of the matter is that this is called a Challenge for a reason, it is not meant to be an easy Sunday funday bike ride. It's supposed to be an effort to push yourself beyond limits you don't know if you can achieve, moving in faith that your body will hold up, that your bike won't give in, and that your supporters and donors/sponsors will see the effort and continue to accompany you on the road to success.

    More importantly, this whole endeavor is for one reason and one reason only, raising as much money as possible to help these kids who day in and day out literally FIGHT FOR THEIR LIVES, and have to deal with a lot more than a couple of bruised muscles, and rashed skin.

    In honor of these children, I choose to go on like a bicycle pedal. No matter how many times I am kicked down, I'm going to come back up.

    I will already have taken 3 days off by the time I return home, and will take whatever time needed OFF the bike to recover (IF NEEDED) until June 1st, at which point, I will be riding the miles promised and raising as much money in donations as I can.

    I am truly thankful for y'all's support and your donations.

    I will strive to keep y'all informed and entertained with as many pictures and videos and ride updates as I can.

    I limited the gory images on this video to keep it somewhat PG-ish.

    Today I went on a short test ride, testing a a few new app, new camera, attachment gear for recording the ride on the bike, and the Fixie Bike.

    Till I figure things out he's a link to the video on my Facebook fundraiser page:

  • We're in the fund raising stage of the challenge, the mileage login begins in June
    18 Apr 2019

    Would you consider making a donation towards this great charity?

    The Great Cycle challenge is a Fund Raising and

    Awareness Raising event, where you volunteer to ride Bicycles and impose your own fund raising/ mileage goals to help the children.

    At this point, we are in the fund raising portion of the challenge which started a few weeks ago, and ends on June 30th.

    Of course, donating to a charity doesn't ever have date limits. But for the sake of the challenge, I do have a limit.

    The mileage logging does not start until June 1st, and although we're doing some conditioning/training rides, and fun rides before that, the goal right now is to raise funds.

    Having said that, I encourage you to donate right here on my page, and after that, I encourage you to consider joining the challenge yourself and going for a bike ride.

    Whos in?
