About Michael Davies

My name is Michael Davies and I live in Portland, Oregon with my wife and two daughters (age 12, and 8) and my dog Salty, a German shorthaired pointer.  I have been employed for the last 17 years at Oregon Health and Science University, where I currently work as a research associate studying lung cancer and lung development.

This will be my first multi-day cycling adventure. However, my father has participated with Bike the US for MS on the Northern Tier (2014), as a segment rider on the Southern Tier (2014 and 2016) and on the Pacific Coast ride (2017). He has had wonderful experiences with the organization, AND he will not stop talking about it……..  So, in 2018 we will take part in this adventure together. 

TRAINING UPDATEMy training has been going very well.  As of May 1st, I have been on the bike for approximately 700 miles.  The bulk of that has been on the trainer in my living room, just getting in a lot of saddle time.  However, my car did break down, and I was able to bike to work for the week and got ~100 miles out on the roads, and it felt great. 

            I also have some more great news! My oldest daughter, Jordyn Davies, will be joining Bike the US for MS as a segment rider.  Jordyn is in 6th grade and is a good bicyclist, unicyclist and an avid sports girl – she plays year-round soccer in addition to running track and cross-country.  She will be joining Grandpa and myself as a one-day segment rider and participate in the 40-mile ride from Centralia to Castle Rock.  

 

I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity to participate in this amazing journey. To do so, each rider has pledged to raise $1 per mile, and I hope to raise more than my pledged goal of $1852. Jordyn will need to raise $2 per mile for a total of $80 (for simplicities sake, this is just going on my fundraising page, for a total goal of $1,932). If you would like to help me achieve my goal and help raise funds for more research into the cause of, and possible cures for multiple sclerosis, there are two easy ways to help:
