Over? Did you say over? Nothing is over until Al & Terry decide it is! Was it over when Al completed his 2018 cross-country ride from California to New York City? Heck No! It ‘ain’t’ over now, because when the going gets tough, the tough get going … to Alaska. That’s right, Alaska!

In June of 2020, Al will attempt to complete a 6,000-mile solo bicycle ride from Anchorage, Alaska to the global headquarters of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) in New York City.
The raw and untamed wilderness of Alaska has seen many things including historic low temperatures, snow measured in feet and, stories of endurance known only to those that survived the wilds of The Last Frontier. In the early summer of 2020, another explorer will venture into the wild with nothing more than the will to survive and a mission to complete a 6,000-mile solo bicycle ride in support of his wife Terry and The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). Survival is a common thread in this historic and heroic attempt. Love is the needle and needful thing that weaves the threads together to form a story of determination, courage and, commitment. Al’s wife Terry, a breast cancer survivor, having already written her chapter of sufferance and stoicism, steps into the multi-faceted role of provider, comforter and, cheerleader as her husband Al saddles up for another herculean effort on the road to help find a cure.
From diagnosis to treatment and beyond, Terry drew strength and stability from Al. Together, Al and Terry forged a path of perseverance, enduring the darkest of times, finding hope and conviction through faith and belief in the love for one another. So many years ago, during that period of doubt and deliberation, Al and Terry found a way to not only withstand the insurmountable challenge ahead of them, they conquered the journey that many of us avoid, on a road less traveled. As they look ahead to Pink Pedals 4 A Cure | Terry’s Ride 2020, Al and Terry once again willingly go forth, passengers of an uncertain future, for the love of those striving to survive and the families that provide sustenance and peace in a turbulent existence.
