About Ben King
Hello friends! My name is Ben King, I am a freshman at Virginia Tech trying to make it through my first year of college while counting down the days until the summer. I'm originally from Abilene Texas, but currently live in Charlottesville Virginia. I'm a Geography major here at Tech, I am also a member of the Virginia Tech cycling team. For several years now my brother, Caleb, and I have shared our love for biking while constantly challenging each other with new rides. It was only a matter of time before we played around with the idea of biking across the United States. It wasn't until I started a job at Tech and met Bret Taylor that I gave this fantasy any serious consideration. After hours of stories about nights in the desert and racing down mountains at 50+ miles an hour, Bret said this, "Sometimes you just have to take the leap, and thank yourself for it later," I knew the opportunity was too good to pass up. I convinced Caleb this ride was for us and we took the leap. Bike the US for MS is a truly amazing program with and for truly amazing people and I am honored to be a part of it, all while preparing for and accomplishing something utterly epic. Not a day goes by that I don't look forward to this summer and all of the ways it will define and change my life. To be a part of something bigger than myself, to be a part of a team working together to accomplish something truly meaningful for some wonderful people, and to open my eyes to the beauty of our country and its people, I will bike the U.S. for MS.
