About Joseph Brockman

Hello all!


My name is Joseph, and if you're reading this you probably already know me and know that this year, I am planning on biking across this wonderful country with the organization Bike the US for MS. 

The desire to bicycle across the country hit me when I bought my first road bike. I've never taken a cross country trip before, and don't particularly care for being in a car for days and days, but have always wanted to cross the country. Bicycling seemed like an obvious choice, but I never thought myself capable. 

Well, this past December I graduated from TCC. A modest accomplishment, but definitely something I had previously never thought myself capable of doing. Looking back to when I was 18, when I thought I would never have any college degree, I feel both humbled and proud. Clearly, I am capable of more than I may feel at one point in time. 

I plan on continuing my higher education, but first, I want to tackle this goal. I'm excited at taking 2017 to do things I'd never thought myself capable.

What's particularly remarkable about this organization is that, throughout our journey, we will be stopping and using our time and energy to help individuals with MS. Some of the money raised goes to the work we will do for them, and some goes to groups doing MS research. I'm thankful that this deeply personal journey will also be able to be focused on something outside myself as well. 

Here are some suggestions for donations that I stole from another 2017 TransAm rider! :)

  • Donate $37.85, or one cent for every mile I will bike!
  • Donate $62, or one dollar for every day I will be riding!
  • Donate $90, or ten dollars for every state I will visit!
  • Donate $378.50, or ten cents for every mile I will bike!

Thank you for your time, and if you choose to support me, I am deeply grateful. Godspeed everyone!
