In one month, on Friday, August 14th, I head out at midnight on a 240-mile gravel race across Minnesota with 3 friends and 450 other brave (and slightly crazy) souls. We start in Gary, South Dakota and have until midnight the next day to finish in Hager City, Wisconsin. The race is unsupported but we are allowed 3 support stops from our crew (my family) along the way to get water, nutrition, bike parts, words of encouragement, etc.
We thought it would be nice to use this event to raise funds for Wheely Good plus it gives me a reason to keep going. This summer at Wheely Good, we have been busier than ever before. With how COVID has hit our communities, people are looking to get outside and turning to riding a bike more than ever. We’ve donated more bikes this summer than our last 3 summers combined. We’ve also helped nearly 100 people fix up a bike they own so they can get riding. At Wheely Good, we don’t charge for parts or our time. It’s a way to love those in our community.
Here’s your chance to support Wheely Good, our DAMn adventure and cheer us on from home. We are a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization so donations made to Wheely Good are tax-deductible. Maybe you want to donate a certain amount per mile or just a flat amount. It all matters and we appreciate you.
It’s going to be amazing and my goal is to make it to Hager City. Thanks for your support, your encouragement and for being a part of our story to love those in our community through bikes.
