My Longest Ride

Usually, I put fun stuff here, since life has so many wonders. This time, I’m mixing fun stuff with other stuff. About a year ago, I learned that my cancer had spread. It’s been a rough ride, but there’s still good news. I can still ride my bike, so I’m cycling across the US and raise money for cancer research. To make the best of the trip, I’ll be sleeping in a tent, so my bike will carry it and the rest of my gear.

I’m cycling along the Trans America route with a 9 other people from Adventure Cycling. The route is about 4,100 miles, not including wrong turns. I’ll cycle through several national parks, hundreds of miles of prairie, and up mountains. Surprisingly, cycling up the Appalachian mountains is harder than the Rockies, more on all that in my next blog posts.

  1. Totally Awesome! I will be following. Almost 3 years with Advanced pc here. Doing a 10 mile trail run tomorrow.
    Rock on!

  2. Steven M,
    Sorry to hear about the health setbacks. Hope that the ride knocks in some good health and hope you see lots of fire flies on some summer evenings.

  4. I just learned of your ride, and your blog. May God bless you every peddle of the way. Prostate cancer has impacted me twice — my only sibling, and now my husband. Looks like your route will not bring you to the Dallas area, but I will be following you as you raise funds for PFC. You are loved.

    • Hi Suzi,

      Thanks very much for your kind words, and I’m sincerely sorry to hear about how prostate cancer has affected your only sibling and husband. With all the new treatments coming out, I very much hope their cancer is manageable. I’m sure the love you have for them helps at least as much. I just wrote a blog post that might help a little as well as well. You can see it at

      Thanks again,
