ONLY 16 DAYS UNTIL I arrive at the Pacific Ocean and complete this coast to coast bicycle benefit ride for Bell from Stone Harbor, NJ to San Diego, CA. I just recently crossed over the border into California. I have traveled 3,597 miles through 15 states so far on this journey across America (NJ, DE, MD, PA, WV, VA, NC, SC, GA, AL, MS, AR, TX, NM, AZ).
Soon I will pedal south and then ride west along the border (staying on the U.S. side). Then I will ride northwest up into the mountains again (continuing to travel on the Southern Tier bicycle route). I plan to finish this coast to coast bicycle journey on July 19th. That day I will ride 31 miles (dropping 2,100 feet) into San Diego from Alpine, California. It will feel so good to dip my front tire in the Pacific Ocean.

Thanks to the generosity of so many, this solo coast to coast bicycle journey has raised $19,250 for Bell Socialization so far & there are still 16 days left! Bell runs the family homeless shelter in my hometown of York, PA where I used to be a caseworker. Unfortunately, the need for their services is far beyond what they can currently accommodate. 700 families per year every year are turned away from Bell Shelter (York County’s family homeless shelter) due to lack of funding. Many of those families have children and some of them are sleeping in cars.
All donations to this GoFundMe go straight from GoFundMe to Bell and are tax deductible. Link to donate to Bell: https://gofund.me/55b78754
