Day 40!!

Today's Destination: Yorktown, VA!

Today we finish our trip. We are all very excited to see family and friends at Yorktown beach. The trip has been amazing and we have felt blessed our entire trip. Thank you to everyone who prayed for us and followed us during our journey. We have compiled a video from pictures and video clips that we thought were some of the best. We will add some of the video clips and pictures from the finish line in a few days. Stay tuned to our blog for the final video. Thanks for all the continued support...Dave thought this song was appropriate for our trip!

Hello everyone! We are officially down to 1 riding day left. Tonight we made our own versions of our top lists. Our lists consists of things we will miss, we won't miss, or things we won't forget. It hard to believe that it's almost done. All the months of preparation and hard work is about to be done...WOW! I know I speak for all the guys when I say THANK YOU. Thank you for all the prayers and support. Check out the video!

Today's Route: Charlottesville, Va - Charles City, Va

This is our next to last day of riding..honestly I thought this would never come! It seems just yesterday we were starting in San Francisco, CA. Nice and sunny outside so we are hittin the road!

Post-Ride Day 38

Current City: Charlottesville , VA

Well if you watched the weather today at all on the east coast you will see that we were under rain the entire day. It was frustrating for most of the day because we all wanted to ride but 45 degrees and raining doesn't make for a very good ride. We had no choice but to continue on our route to finish in Yorktown on November 6th. We did get some productive things done today though, we all now have clean clothes! The site of us carrying all of our laundry to the laundry mat was pretty funny. We had one full laundry bag and 2 armfuls of other clothes...quite the site. We are all looking forward to getting on the bike tomorrow and heading to Yorktown on Saturday!

pre ride day 38

Today's Route: Lexington, Va - Charlottesville, Va

Well it's raining outside and it looks like it's going to be raining for awhile. We are hanging out right now and seeing what our plan can be for the day. Hopefully it will stop raining so we can get on the road but we will see. The weather is just something that we can't control!

Post Ride Day 37

Current City:Lexington, VA

Today's ride was beautiful. We saw some beautiful countryside of Virginia. Unfortunately Dave is sick so we thought it would be best to cut the ride short and get him to a room where he could sleep and rest up for the home stretch. He's a trooper so he'll be back soon. We started off the day at Radford University meeting with some of Tony's old professors. One of the professors got in touch with the school newspaper who will be doing a story on our trip! It was cool to see the campus and hear the stories of Tony's "glory" days.

pre ride day 37

Today's Route: Radford, VA - Blue Ridge Parkway.

We really don't have a definite stop for tonight but we are going to try and make it as far as we can. We expect to end up somewhere close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and camp there for this evening. Today's weather is a little overcast and cold and should make for a cold ride today. Other than that the weather is nice and looking forward to a good ride.

We are heading to Radford University for them to take some pictures of us and to ask Tony some questions about our trip. They are going to doing a story on us for their students, another way we are getting our message out! Thanks for all the prayers and we will be home soon.
