About Randall Lear

     I am riding my bicycle 3785 miles; across the United States of America!  Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. Say it out loud  "UNITED STATES of AMERICA - LAND of the FREE and HOME of the  BRAVE".  Sounds good doesn't it?

     I will be starting my bicycle ride across these great United States Sunday, May 31st, 2015. My back wheel will be in the Atlantic Ocean in Yorktown, Virginia.  I will be finishing on   Saturday, August 1st, 2015 in San Francisco, California with my front wheel in the Pacific Ocean. I will bring my tent and sleeping bag and camp the whole way across this magnificent country we call  "the good old  U.S.A." The money I raise will be used  for Multiple Sclerosis research and I personally will help to raise awareness of this disease as I pedal my bike from sea to shining sea.

I Dedicate my Cross-Country Journey to my very good friends Dave and Heather who battle not only the physical loss of function but also  the massive life style change this disease presents  on a daily basis.

 
 Dave and Heather will be Joining my group of Multiple Sclerosis Warriors for one of our bicycling adventure days into Carbondale Illinois.The very next day Dave and Heather  join us in a day-long service project for someone in  Carbondale who is also afflicted with this Terrible disease

 

    I will bicycle through Virginia ,Kentucky ,Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada and California. Along the way in many of these states I will have the pleasure of doing service projects for people who are afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis. With these day-long projects I get to do awesome things  for people in need; things I would normally take for granted but are huge obstacles for individuals and families suffering with MS.

     Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic, sometimes disabling disease that affects the body’s central nervous system, which comprises the brain and spinal cord. 

     With a  fundraising goal of  $3,800, I’m definitely going to need all the help I can get.  If you would consider donating, whether it be one dollar or one thousand, it would really mean a great deal to me, and everyone fighting this disease!

 

     If you are able, any donations are greatly appreciated, nothing is too small!!!  Donations can be  made online using the button in the top right of this page, or you can mail a check to:

Earnest Hemmingway said it best:  "It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and can coast down them... Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motorcar only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. "
