Bike riders will cycle across the United States starting from San Francisco, CA to Connecticut. They will leave San Francisco mid-June 2011 and for the next 8 weeks will bike through California, Nevada, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio and New York, before reaching their destination, the University of Connecticut School of Medicine in Farmington. The final leg of the journey will be a reception to complete the 4,000 mile trek, with a team of family, friends and supporters alongside.
