Military veteran's bid to cycle to the USA

My name is John Duffy and I have served in the United States Air Force for the past 22 years.  In the summer of 2019, as I retire from military service, I plan to return home to the USA and my family by cycling from Europe all the way back to the USA solo and unsupported. 

Over the large distances involved, multiple ferries, an airline flight, and costly freight shipping will be involved. This is the reason that I ask for your support today. Even a small contribution will help turn this dream into reality.  I have already begun to blog about my preparation and will continue to add details as the trip progresses.

Please follow along at:

More about the Quest Velomobile recumbent bicycle I will be riding:

-Manufactured in The Netherlands by 

-Empty weight: 29 kg (64 lbs)
-3-wheeled tadpole trike design
-Entirely human-powered. No electric motor
-Legally a bicycle in Europe and all 50 US states 

*The exact route of the trip may vary depending on many factors.

I sincerely thank you for your support!

John Duffy
