What a super idea - and a great way to see this beautiful country while doing something good for a lot of people. I noticed that you mentioned he is supporting other causes & not just breast cancer.

Go Dr. Hall!!

Stay calm and carry on.

don-
thanks for the link to that amazing blog. raising money for an excellent cause and pedaling the perimeter of the U.S. what a fantastic and inspirational journey. i'm going to share this with a few of my biking friends/family.

my gym is having a Tour de France challenge where teams of 3 or 4 people try to ride 1000 miles (total - not individually) in 30 days. starts july 5th so i am gearing up for some increasing mileage. you can do indoors (classes or not) and outdoors to attain this goal. hmm...hope i can keep it up.

thanks again for the link!

How about a bike ride?

(Courtesy of Kim Komando www.komando.com )

Meet John Hall. He's a 62-year-old emergency medical physician.

John is currently on a 120-day bike rideógive or take a few days. In all, he will ride more than 12,000 miles.

He is traveling the perimeter of the country, and has already ridden close to 10,000 miles.

For some, a 12,000-mile bicycle ride may sound like sheer lunacy. Others may simply wonder why he would attempt such a thing.

Well, John has a very noble reason for the ride. He is raising awareness of breast cancer, which his wife recently battled.

John is also raising donations for several organizations. At his site, you can contribute money directly to the organizations.

So far, John has raised more than $100,000! I'm sure his story will inspire you to open your purse strings and make a contribution.

Check out his blog. There are plenty of interesting pictures and stories from his journey.
