“PRESS-ON” - 2Cyclists, 2Bikes and 2Coasts
Rick rode his bike across the Northern part of the USA before marrying me 25 years ago. After we were married we talked about doing a cross country bike trip together but that we would do the Southern route since it was shorter. We planned to wait until our last child, Brooke went to college in the Fall of 2011. What we didn’t realize is it would be our 25th wedding anniversary and thought it would be better to do a more RELAXING trip and put off the bike trip for another year. So, it’s that time, another year has come and the plans are being made...
We could write a book about all the good and not-so-good comments that we are receiving from family, friends and even strangers. One of the questions asked often is, “Are we going to ride for a Cause?”. We were open to the idea, but not sure which Cause.
For the last 9 years I have been serving with the M.S. Youth Group from FBC in Bainbridge, Ohio at the Cincinnati Vineyard Church S.O.S. Mission Trip. In the last few years, an organization called Destiny Rescue presented their mission and the first time I heard Pete speak about it, I was amazed and wondered what I could do to be a part of this incredible ministry? This year, after Pete spoke, it hit me, I KNOW WHAT I CAN DO! So, I went to Pete and asked him if I could link Destiny Rescue to our ride and have people sponsor us by the mile or by the day? He was up for the challenge and seemed as excited as myself!
We will be dipping our back tire in the Pacific on August 26th and God willing, dipping our front tire in the Atlantic on October 5th, the day after our 26 wedding anniversary! It’s a long ride, approximately 2,600 miles and 6 weeks to complete it. If we get discouraged, we will be ENCOURAGED knowing that if we PRESS-ON, the donations will continue!! We are overwhelmed by how God is leading this ride!
There may be some riders joining us at certain points in the journey, which we will post on our blog if they do. You can follow us at 2cyclists.blogspot.com and learn more about Destiny Rescue and how to sponsor.
Please pray for our safety, strength and that by doing this, God will open other’s eyes and hearts to help the ministry of Destiny Rescue.
