I've decided to temporarily switch from my unicycle to a two wheel Trek Madone bicycle and another great adventure! On June 16th I will join a group of men riding from the Oregon Pacific coast over three mountain ranges, through five states and 2400 miles to Minneapolis, MN.
Besides the pleasure of a challenge and the health benefits I have the added joy of serving the Lord by riding to benefit kids in our three orphanages in the Philippines.
I have enjoyed playing basketball and doing unicycle shows to express my love for Jesus. Its great fun to do the same riding a bike!
Not just any bike either! John Burke, president of Trek, has donated a new Trek Madone for me to train on and make the effort of nearly a hundred miles per day in 26 days.
Sponsors have pledged well over $110,000 to date if all miles are completed with more joining each week ranging from a nickel a mile to $5.00 a mile. My goal and motto is now RESM or Ride Every Single Mile!
Since Christmas I have ridden 80 hours and 1500 miles and lost 20 pounds preparing for this exciting adventure.
