Phil Chmura
for Make-A-Wish Foundation of America
 WESTFIELD, MA
Phil Chmura has been riding for 25 years. Cycling coast-to-coast is one of the many highlights on his bucket list.

Phil has selected the Make a Wish Foundation of America as his charity of choice for financial contributions. His goal is to raise $5,500 -- $100 for each day of riding.

The entire ride will be completed over 9 weeks and consists of 55 ride days and 8 rest days. He will cover 13 states, 4,272 miles and average 68-86 miles/day.

His adventure begins on Sunday, June 15th in Everett, WA. Follow him online as he rides across the US at http://pscycleusa.com/.

Thank you so much to everyone for their support as Phil rode his bicycle across the US. He completed the tour on Saturday, August 16th & was part of the "EFI" (every freakin' inch) team -- which means he never sagged (took a ride in the crew van due to injury, fatigue, bad weather, etc.).

All photos have been posted to http://pscycleusa.com/, be sure to check them out!

Phil rode 447.16 mi last week from Devil's Tower, WY to Pierre, SD.

Along the way he got to visit Bridal Veil Falls in Devil's Tower, WY; Crazy Horse Memorial in Custer County, South Dakota; Mount Rushmore in Keystone, SD; and the Badlands National Park in South Dakota. In addition he photographed gorgeous landscapes, flowers and a couple animals, including mountain goats and a herd of buffalo, along the way.

On his day off, he went fishing with a couple friends and caught 19 fish that were filleted for the group luncheon on day 1 of week 5.

All of the pics have been added to his website. Week 4 begins on Day 23: http://pscycleusa.com/day23.html.
