Be the match, by the mile.

I am trying to raise $1000 for the Be the Match bone marrow transplant registry.

2014 By The Mile for Be The Match: Mr. Andrew David Hoffman - By The Mile for Be The Match

This is my first attempt at using a thing i enjoy to really actually help others. If it goes well i will do a LOT more.

I am in the route selection process, which means i need to find a safe route to ride. As my username suggests, i am into transit, railroads, etc, so i'm thinking i might ride from one SEPTA train station to another one or something like that. Depending on specifics, it may be a longer one way route, or a more moderate round trip.

Please share widely. Thank you.

- Andy

I have selected start and return points for the route. I need to test ride the whole distance at least once to make sure my bike can do it (i know i can) and to check road conditions and traffic patterns so i do not get hung up doing it for real. I am currently asking around for a single support vehicle in case something goes wrong. It's a 22 mile round trip, which i am going to try and extend to get to 26.2+ with some fiddling of certain points, mostly near the start and returning to finish.

I am going to be using map my ride, so sponsors, or anyone else interested can follow me on facebook. I am going to set the app to send updates at timed intervals.
