Two of the Very long Access Extended Rider founding associates, Greg Williams and Wayne Rasmussen, not long ago tried a wildly formidable charity motorcycle experience dubbed “Autumn Extravaganza.” The plan was to journey in all 48 contiguous states within just 10 consecutive days.
They pretty much did it.
Greg Williams, lead rider for this journey stated what took place, “We ended up so very near, but Mother Mother nature assumed in any other case. There was snow in Maine and New Hampshire at the beginning of the ride. In the Midwest we encountered cold temperatures and substantial winds, which wasn’t pleasurable. But it was the ice on I-90 in Montana that certain me it was time to simply call it quits.” Greg’s motorbike, Ice Dancer, set it this way: “I was on my aspect bouncing off the median and Greg was sliding down the highway on his back again. It wasn’t like we experienced a selection or just about anything.”
The experience started in Kittery Maine on October 17th and finished 10 days later on in Montana on October 26th, just 1 point out shy of #48. In in between the two intrepid, and incredibly cold, riders seasoned:
- 7,000+ miles using on the route
- 4,000+ miles using to/from the route
- 15.5 days – riding
- 1 snow working day – not riding
- 2 ice days – also not riding
Autumn Extravaganza was conceived to assist raise consciousness and funds for Powering the Scenes, an business centered charity that not only offers fiscal guidance to enjoyment technological know-how pros in need due to really serious sickness or injury, but also will make out there psychological wellness equipment and means via its Mental Wellbeing and Suicide Avoidance Initiative.
Lori Rubinstein, Govt Director of Guiding the Scenes mentioned, “We are so grateful to Greg and Wayne for their valiant attempt to full the 48-point out/10-day obstacle. The Extended Riders are an remarkable group of people with a longstanding determination to caring for those people less privileged than on their own. Be sure to clearly show your assist by earning a donation at behindthescenescharity.org/lrlr.”
Greg and Wayne are properly dwelling (all protecting equipment and bicycle guards worked as created!) and contemplating about when to test this ride again. Ice Dancer may perhaps have the past phrase on that, “I’d be satisfied to attempt that route once more, but let us wait around till summer months.”
