Yorktown, Va. to San Francisco, CA for Cystic Fibrosis

Welcome to my blog.

I've been trying to cross adventures off my "bucket list."  Last year, 2010, was a round-trip cross-country motorcycle ride from home, Langhorne, PA to Lake Tahoe ending in Modesto, CA.  Including a hike up Half-Dome, in Yosomite National Park with my older brother, Ted, my nephew, Teddy and Logan.  Then returned home back to Langhorne.  Whole trip encompassed 2 weeks and approx. 7000 miles.

So, this year, 2011, is a tribute cross-country bicycle ride for Domenic. He was born with Cystic Fibrosis and lost the fight after only 5 months of life. Therefore, I am busy training with a new bicycle, breaking in a new seat and trailer for a late June departure.  I anticipate arriving in San Francisco for Labor Day weekend, then to Modesto, CA.

I will be accepting donations for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, "Team Little Man Domenic", via this direct website for Great Strides http://www.cff.org/Great_Strides/VincentSchrier Help me raise money for research and heightened awareness to CURE this devastating childhood disease.
