On September 13th 2016, we intend to commute from San Francisco to New York, in other words, across the United States. After 5.412 km/3.363 miles we expect to arrive in New York on
October 17th. This is equivalent to riding 200 km a day with inlaid 3 rest days. 26.282 vertical meters and 285 hours in the saddle! It will be 2000 km longer than the world's toughest cycling race ‘Tour de France’ and we ride without escort cars, soigneurs,
masseurs, mechanics and so on.
‘Several others have done that before!’ - this is correct. However, we do stand out anyway - in all modesty – stand out a lot, compared to
the younger ‘well trimmed’ bike athletes.
Erik Bergmann: 58 years old. After working many years as a police officer, Erik became the personal driver for Mærsk McKinney
Møller (late CEO of A.P.Moller). The employment, however, ended in a tragic accident at work with years of living in pain to follow. Now, after many treatments and operations, Erik is once again fit for fight, and has begun to prepare for the challenge
of his life.
Peter Møller: 65 years old. Has in recent years worked in various municipalities in the detection of benefit fraud and did retire from Dragør municipality
in the summer of 2016. Was in November 2013 diagnosed with melanoma with subsequent operations, treatment and check ups every 3 months. It will take 5-10 years before he can really relax and believe to be cancer free, but instead of just sitting down and wait,
an old boyhood dream of cycling across the United States must be acted out.
In the early planning stages we quickly agreed that we would ride for a good cause. It was obvious that it would
be Danish Cancer Society, and thus it will remain so. We will create a donation opportunity where everyone has the opportunity to contribute with any amount they see fit i.e. a certain amount for each completed kilometer.
However, before we get
there we have a wide range of expenses which we must attempt to cover and that is what we will work on the next 6 months before departure.
Our motto is:
‘Help US to help others in the fight against cancer!’
we’re seeking sponsors to cover the large expenses associated we a trip like this and luckily we have already succeed to secured some – but we need more.
