Great cycle challenge

If this is not allowed, Please remove it
I know it’s for bicycles but I joined the challenge this year to ride to help raise money to fight childhood cancer. Many of you ride more a week than I do a month but I feel this is more about helping those that really need it and maybe someday finding a rear cure or at least better ways to treat cancer.
I want to challenge any of you out there to join me and ride to fight childhood cancers
you can follow me at Great Cycle Challenge USA - Riders - ACE Jones if you like
I am going to try to surpass my ride goal and hit 75 to 100 miles
Thanks in advance for any support you might offer be it $$ or just moral support


Nice that you try to improve the world while unicycling! :uni:

I just read your text. Looking it up I learned that cancer is by far not the number one killer of children in USA – but firearms are number one. Wow. (Child and Teen Firearm Mortality in the U.S. and Peer Countries | KFF) While cancer does rank number one or two in other “developed countries”; in the USA firearms, motor vehicles, other injuries and congenital diseases all rank higher by a large margin.

Back to childhood cancer: As availability of health care in your country seems to by largely determined by socioeconomic status, I’d consider combining the fundraiser with a call for public health care – like in other peer countries. (rise awareness, call to vote?) After all, new (and often super expensive) cancer treatment will only help if families can actually afford it.

Good luck!

well I have to admit I thought this would get a little more traction than it did, not really so much for donations but maybe just some banter about using something I already do to help a good cause.
none the less just wanted to at least close it out in saying I met my 60 mile goal with a ride yesterday that put me at 62 miles. I wanted to do another 12 to 16 tomorrow but Ian has other plans so I will take the 62 and be happy with it


Hey thats awesome to hear. Congrats!

just a note, there is a gentleman in Hawaii also doing the challenge on a uni and he is only 30 miles short of 1000 for the month, holy moly now that is some intense riding
