It seems like a mad dash across New England--Tuesday morning Hans and Mike left Albany, NY and tonight's post on Facebook of a super-sized salad for serious cyclists is from Keene, NH! Somewhere along the way today, WWLP TV 22 from Chicopee, MA caught up with Mike and Hans en route to Keene and did a great Shared Vision Quest interview.
I can't wait to find out what kind of mileage these guys have been doing since leaving Buffalo, NY Saturday morning, because their text message tonight reports that they will be in Manchester, NH tomorrow, and due into Portland, ME sometime on Friday, after nearly 42 days of riding and nearly 4000 miles! Mike and Hans will spend the night in Portland and then continue on to Lubec, where they hope to finish at Quoddy Head, the easternmost point of the continental US!
Although this is definitely a dream for both Mike and Hans, the Shared Vision Quest Coast to Coast adventure is to raise money for retinal research to find a sure for cone-rod dystrophy like Mike has. Be sure to donate to support this effort!
