About Amanda Clark
When we arrived at the Oregon coast line last August, I knew that I wanted my bike to lead me back to the West Coast again this summer. Something about traveling 4,000+ miles by bike makes you never want to leave the saddle. Then again, something about being a part of a wonderful organization makes you never want to leave it as well.
I have been with Bike the US for MS since its inception, but last year was the first time I participated in the actual cross country ride. I hadn’t toured before the trip, but I absolutely fell in love with a schedule in which you woke up in a new place every morning, met new people every day, explored new landscapes, and otherwise just biked and ate. And oh did we eat!
My first hand experience with the impact that Bike the US for MS has had on all of the individuals we have met who are affected by MS has kept me involved beyond the bike as well. By participating in service projects for people with MS along the route and in our area, Bike the US for MS makes itself so much more than just an incredible adventure or a fundraising group. We directly reach out to people and we make a difference.
If I thought it was a rush to ride into a town with a bike gang of 12 of us, I can’t even imagine what it will feel like with almost 30 of us. I know the funds we raise will make a huge difference to the James Q Miller MS clinic, but I also know that we will inspire, encourage, and spread hope.
