About Albert Francis
HI my name is Albert Francis and I'm 63 years old and retired, I'm married and have two children and one grandson . I enjoy fishing, camping, bicycling and the great outdoors .
In 2013 when I retired I set out to ride across America on the Trans Am route from Yorktown Va to Florence Or. 4202 miles later I completed my journey. I was so overwhelmed by the people I met and places I visited on my 72 day journey that I knew I would do this all again someday. Well that someday is now, having joined the 2015 northern tier team, I will be riding for MS, I,ve done many rides for the MS organization and others, in the past, and I'm especially looking forward to this epic ride across the Northern America.
What is Bike the US for MS
It's a awesome 68 day ride through small back road America. A trip seldom seen in the hurried pace of the interstate driver. So we ride for a very particular reason--to help in the fight to end MS. Starting on May 28th from Bar Harbor Maine until Aug 6 ending in Seattle Washington, 4300 miles later to raise money and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. We will also be stopping along the way to complete service projects for people living with MS!
I can't think of a more spectacular way to dedicate myself to the advancement of research and treatment for Multiple Sclerosis than to join this team of men and women for an inspiring trek across the country spreading awareness for Ms, while enjoying the wide open spaces. Please join me in this effort dedicated to help educate newly diagnosed patients, and raise the much needed research funds to help find a cure.
I’ve committed to raise $1.00 for every mile I ride this summer for a total of $4,300.00 before the start of our trip. All donations are tax deductible, and the money goes directly to the charity -- funding MS clinics around the country.
