Rich Hall offering a word of encouragement for the 2016 unsupported Trans US Cycle ride. I am planning on setting off from the West coast in early 2016 and will cycle a long route across the country. I estimate it is going to be around 4000 miles by the time I check in to the MSF office in New York. It should take around 2.5 months if all goes well.
I am of course looking for donations to MSF and will be using the cycle ride as a focus to highlight what they do and try to get some media attention for the great work done in over 60 countries. The ride is entirely SELF FUNDED and ALL money raised goes to Doctors Without Borders.
What I need from you now is ideas. I need a name for this new project. The walk from Amsterdam to Barcelona was of course walka2b, I will be retaining this as the website name etc but feel that the ride deserves its own name.
I would like as many suggestions as possible on Facebook, Twitter or on the website and then there will be a vote. It is therefore up to you. I need ideas that may involve Doctors Without Borders (MSF), the USA , Independence, Bikes , Advocacy, Challenge, my kit sponsor (Fat Lad At The Back (FLAB)). It needs to be short and so it can go on a logo (if anyone wants to help with logo design that would be remarkable).
The following are my own efforts which are predictable and awful.
Hence I need help. Thank you in advance . Please share this as widely as possible.
