Matty needs a Road Bike

$975 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 5 people in 2 months
August 13th, 2017 my wife and I started riding bikes for enjoyment and this passion has grown into something more. We started with simple mountain bikes from Toys R Us then moved on to real bikes and bought some Giant ATX's. On average I ride my bike 150 plus miles a week and have been pushing myself more and more so that one day we both may participate in Ironman which takes a lot of training and more; but it's a goal we plan to reach.

I signed up for Ironman this year online though I didn't know that I had to have a road bike to participate let alone theyre so much more training to do so I started this campaign to raise enough to get a proper road bike.

This picture is the road bike and Im so close to having it, Once Ive gotten this road bike I'll begin increasing my distances and speed. Ive done 3 centuries (100 mile rides) on my mountain bike so far.

This is the 3rd century

Each day I post my mileage in a cycling group that Im in on Facebook and also I track everything via my Strava ( https://www.strava.com/athletes/24222325) as each day I ride and every increase in my performance is a personal goal for myself.

In short, I've found that with a little help I can reach the goal of having the bikes I need to move further into the sport and one day be a part of Ironman and hopefully ride for a few charities. Thanks for your consideration and reading my GoFundme.

Trying to beat this cold by pushing out some miles while streaming some of the rides. Today I started streaming to our twitch portions of the ride and I will continue to do more of this as things progress. thanks for the support so far.
