About the ride

We’re riding across America, along the Southern Tier route from San Diego to St. Augustine, Florida, starting at the beginning of March 2010. The route is approximately 3,100 miles, and should take us a little less than 60 days to complete. And so we have a good reason for doing it, we’re raising money for Big City Mountaineers along the way.

We hope to hit a goal of $6,200, which will help BCM deal with some of ths costs of sending out approximately 50 weeklong backcountry trips in California, Colorado, the Pacific Northwest and the Boundary Waters. Each trip matches 5 at-risk urban teenagers with 5 adult mentors, for what is many of the kids’ first trip into the outdoors, and a new perspective for them. To donate, click here.
