The Big Ride Across America
Presented by Jeff Ericson
Wednesday, Dec 4th, 7:00 pm
On 17 June 2013, 14 cyclists left Seattle on a 3,300 mile journey across the United States. We met the day before in Seattle for the first time and unsure about how we would all get along for the next 48 days. We came from all across the country drawn together by the American Lung Association’s Big Ride Across America. Each of us had raised a minimum of $6,500 for the opportunity to participate in this awesome ride. We crossed the states of Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Maryland before we reached Washington DC on August 3rd. Through the wind, rain, heat & humidity, all of the riders that started out in Seattle finished the ride in DC.
