"Yes I know 4200 miles is a lot, and there are shorter ways to cross the country; but what the heck-remember, it's not about the destination, but it's about the journey. It's about seeing and experiencing small town USA, national parks, small cafes, little stops, ice cream shops, meeting people, and seeing our country-not on a whirlwind through the window of a car, but mile by mile, from the seat of a bicycle, and by staying in approximately 60 different towns. It's a celebration of what makes our country tick, the blessings we've been given; and, a celebration of life, while, hopefully, making a difference, in a small way!! I've had the chance to see a lot of the world, but not much of our country, and really look forward to seeing a heck of a lot of it this summer, and would love to do so with friends."

Erika is one of our charity riders on tour this year who comes to us via the Bay Area in California . She is raising funds for Susan G. Komen Cancer Foundation to honor her mother who passed away and support friends who have been diagnosed with the disease. She has raised almost $50,000 in donations. Congratulations, Erika!

Erika celebrated her 40th birthday on tour this year, in Dillion, Montana to be exact. She was also part of the fearsome ice cream foursome that stopped for a cone almost every single day on tour!
