I'm currently riding from Vancouver, Canada to Tijuana, Mexico in aid of Cancer Research UK. This will be the first time I have ridden more than 15 consecutive miles in my life. I've just passed into Oregon from Washington. It would be great of you visited my trip site/facebook page and followed me during endeavours.

Hi,  I'm a UK national who intends to ride from Vancouver to Tijuana, beginning the trip in the second week in April.  A plan to stretch the ride over 3-4 months.  After a couple of calls to insurance providers I'm struggling to get cover for a period of more than 3 consecutive months.  Anybody got any ideas?  thanks

Hi, I'll be riding from Vancouver to US/Mexico border, beginning in April. I'm taking three months.  Really don't want to rush it.  I'm guessing I'll like to deviate from the given route - but not to sure when and why?

First time I've ridden more than 15miles in one go.  Some people say I'm foolish!? I'm hoping to raise money for Cancer Research UK while I'm about it.  Please come and support me at: /
