Northern Tier (West) Begins

They are loaded up, ready to go and about to hit the road. We wish you all a safe ride, a great time and awesome memories.

Three Days and Counting...

We only have three days to finish our preparations for the trip, and several bike repairs to finish. While on a practice ride yesterday, TJ's chain broke, so off to the Hostel Shoppe we go to get parts to fix it. Katie's bike also needed some work done on the brakes. My bike still needs the headlights and bottle cages mounted. Chris and Dad are going to replace the seat cord that ties their seat fabric on.

Katies Fortune Cookie

Katie just pulled this fortune out of a cookie. I have to say, Katie gets very specific and accurate fortunes out of cookies....and it isn't like she eats at Chinese restaurants more than a couple times per year. Amazing.

What is with this girl and fortune cookies? The day before her bike accident a few years ago, she got this poor fortune. Yeah, the day before!

Be the Difference You Wish to See

Together we make a difference, each and every one of us. When I was in an bicycle accident, 4 years ago I experienced a life changing feeling that helped shape who I am today and who I forever will be.

I experienced a time where I felt like I couldn't do very much for myself and I really couldn't. My family and friends of the family were always by my side giving me the love and support I needed. I know I haven't thanked any one of them enough but I say it again now, thank you.

One Penny For Biking 5 Miles

WHAT A DEAL!!!! Katie has decided to raise money for two Charities. She is asking for one penny for each five miles that she bikes on this trip. If she completes the 2500 mile trip, the donation would be only $5.
