Hey All:

My name is Omar, and my buddy and I will be cycling across Europe in the summer of 2011 to raise money for LIVESTRONG as well as a Washington D.C. charity called "A Wider Circle." We're calling our trip the "Pan-Euro Pursuit." I'd like to get some helpful suggestions/comments from people who are experienced in long-distance cycling, so if you could give me any pointers I'd greatly appreciate it.

Also, for anyone else who has cycled on behalf of a charity, if you received sponsorship, could you please tell me which corporations you asked for sponsorship and who gave to you guys?

If you'd like to check out our site, please go to www.paneuropursuit.com. Our email addresses can be found in the "Contact Us" section.

If you would like to donate to our LIVESTRONG account please go to:

But even if you don't do that, please spread the word about what we're doing. Let us know what you think too by sending us an email at contact@paneuropursuit.com.

Thanks for the support!
