Hello, I’m Dave Nowlan. I cycled from Encinitas, Calif., to Cape Cod, Mass. from April 22 through May 28, 2012 in an effort to raise awareness of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and to help fund research for a cure. My wife, Claire, and daughter, Julia, both have MS. I broke my back in a sledding accident almost three years ago; I’m the luckiest guy in the world to have recovered without being paralyzed and was able to ride this long cross continent adventure. Click on this link to “my story” for more information and why I continue riding. Here is a link to Information about MS

Day 8 Wraping up Arizona
What a great day. The entire day was like living a dream. We started the day "Standing on the corner in Winslow Arizona"..How can you beat that? Then we went to the Petrified Forest, and the Painted Desert, and still got in 94 miles. We got within 5 miles of the New Mexico border and experienced the second flat of the day and ran out of daylight..I guess it had to end sometime.
We also got a little goofy along the way (to keep our sanity). Enjoy!
