As this blog shows, I love cycle touring. The USA has so many wonderful sights, so I want to cycle across it. My oncolgists tell me I should do that soon because I’ve had cacner for 2 years, and regretagly it’s spread. I’m raising money to pay for my personal costs during the 3 1/2 month ride across the US, so donors know what they’re paying for. In the table below, costs listed as monthly are multiplied by 3.5 in the total, since the ride is 3 1/2 months.
|Adventure Cycling||I’m joining a touring group to get help if I need it. I also want to share the experience with other cyclists. Adventure Cycling is respected touring organization. This payment includes a guide, camp grounds, and food.||5500||Once||5500|
|Health Insurence||Health insurance is important because of my cancer and medications, which costs $10,000 a moth without insurance.||350||Monthly||1225|
|Storage||I moved out of my apartment and will store my furniture and other stuff in a rented storage room.||200||Monthly||700|
|Gear||I have a touring bike and gear that’s worked great in past tours, but I’ll have to replace gear that’s wore out.||400||Once||400|
|Travel||I need to fly to the starting point and fly back from the finish.||300||Twice||600|
|Shipping||I need to ship my bike to the starting point and back when I’m done.||200||Twice||400|
|Phone Service||I hope to live stream during the ride, so I need good phone service.||90||Montly||240|
