This May, you can follow along with Petunia, the little dog on the big bike tour, as we ride from coast to coast across the United States. Also known as Touring Tunes, this little wonder dog and her human have been preparing for a summer of cycling, camping, and living on the road to explore our nation and capture our adventures on film.
We'll be leaving from our home in New Jersey to Yorktown, Virginia, where we will begin the Adventure Cycling Association's TransAmerica route, and begin the journey of over four thousand miles to reach Astoria, Oregon.
For about three months, we'll be meeting lots of new people, braving the elements, and capturing the journey for our friends back home. We'd love for you to help us reach our goal so we can share this adventure of a lifetime with you.
We've already reached our goal of $500 for a GoPro Hero+ camera and a few bike parts that were needed. We are so grateful to our friends and family for showing your support for our trip and our documentary!
Any funds raised now will go to The Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation (http://www.alzinfo.org, see more here: http://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=5909#.U0IH6typlCg). This cause is close to my heart as my grandmother is living with Alzheimer's disease. She always encouraged me to travel and write or document my adventures, and during this bike tour, I will be visitng the one state in the country she says she hasn't seen (Wyoming).
We appreciate your gifts to support our mission to raise money for this excellent cause.
Thanks for watching and thank you for your support!
