444 miles. #epic444 – the entire Natchez Trace – a challenge with a cause. I’m riding the trace to support Team Red, White, and Blue – a cool organization which supports veterans as they return home from war and integrate back into society. One of the things that I treasure about cycling is the freedom that it gives me – freedom to explore, freedom to travel, freedom to experience life. This is just one of many freedoms I enjoy because of the sacrifice that many soldiers have made for this country. Please join me in supporting this cause by donating a small amount for each mile that I ride or any amount at all would be fantastic!

1 penny per mile – $4.44
1 nickel per mile – $22.20
1 dime per mile – $44.40
1 quarter per mile – $111.00
1 dollar per mile – $444.00

    You need a water boy! That trail is hot and buggy this time of year. Great cause and write up. I would be happy to draft as far as I could or until my rear said the end is near…. Good luck.
