Final Overhaul of the Bikes

8.17.2010 | Blog

Yesterday we put our primary bikes, the Treks, into the Bike Lane shop in Reston to have their final overhaul before we start our ride.  In checking our mileage on both primary and alternate bikes, we’ve covered close to 4,000 miles each since we started getting ready in late April.   We’ll maintain our training rides over the next two weeks and then use the first few days of September to get all of the things done we need to do, both at home and for the road.   We are anxious and read to get started!   We are excited about the journey to come, the ride’s intent and mission, and getting the word out about the Fund and the people it helps.


I just want to wish you guys luck in case i don’t get to talk to you. Please be safe!

Hello Kim and Rob, I really admire what you are doing. I live outside of Baton Rouge LA (on the east side) I would be happy to host you in my home if you come by this way. We could cook a nice cajun meal for you. My daughter and her husband live near me and we could accommodate several people with sleeping arrangements. Between the two households,we have four extra bedrooms.

I heard about you on Fox News.

Sincerely, Norma Cardwell


Thanks so much for the offer! We appreciate your support and will be in contact if we need accommodations in your area. It’s people like you that make us smile!


Thanks! Love you!
