Ride for ALS
We here at Lone Peak are helping to support William Armstrong, in his ride across the USA from the east coast to the west. We have provided him his setup of bags for the journey and we will e displaying some of his daily blogs here. Catch the bags in use and help out the cause of ALS as you can. You can donate to his fundraising efforts here.
The packs he is using are the Mt. Superior on back, The Millcreek Panniers on the front. The Kickback II top tube bag and our Expandable miniwedge seat bag.

Rehoboth Beach -> Dover, DE (Akridge Scout Reservation)
Daily mileage: 50.47
Total mileage: 50.47
Accommodations: hammock camping
First day! Loaded up at Rehoboth Beach with my family; touched the water; took some pictures and got started about 10:15 for Washington state.
The ride itself was a nice little warmup ride on flat ground. Wind was actually going WITH me (north) today so it felt great to ride at my own pace…until it started torrential down pouring on me. Thought I would just tough it out and let it pass but it was definitely worth stopping. Figured it’s not worth being miserable on the first day. Actually pretty happy God decided to humble me first day. Reminded me that this ride is the definition of the saying “it’s a marathon, not a sprint.”
