Here’s my latest video journal for 48 Across the 48, my 3600 mile solo bicycle ride from Seattle, WA to Boston, MA (and then on to Provincetown, Cape Cod, MA) from July 3-August 20, 2014.  This journey helped raise over $18,000 to benefit cancer research at the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, MN.

I started my back tire of my bike in Puget Sound, on the West Coast, and ceremonially ended this 48 day trek by dipping the front tire of my trusty bike into the Atlantic Ocean at Race Point, Cape Cod.

My friend, MN composer Michael Monroe gave this song to me early in my journey, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized that “Calling” was the perfect end cap to my long ride.
