30X30 For A New School

The challenge:
I will ride my bike 30 miles every day for 30 days.  To keep with the theme, I ask you to consider showing your support by contributing tax-deductable denominations of $30 increments--don't be shy.

Through this campaign, I am combining two of my passions: cycling and education.  By the time I'm done, I will have ridden 900 total miles.  Admittedly, I'm scared and this will hurt--a lot.

My Rules:
Start date: Saturday, December 16, 2017.
End date: Sunday, January 14, 2018.
I have to ride 30 miles within 24 hours--rain or shine, healthy or sick.
I may apply credit for rides exceeding 50 miles.
No indoor rollers, unless of poor air quality.

The only exception: HAVING A BABY #keepitreal
