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 11 Longest Ride to date
Today I rode from Albuquerque to Santa Rosa NM. The weather was perfect and the roads were good. The day started with a 10 mile ride on a great bike path. Then I climbed over another mountain pass heading to the east on RT 66 and stayed on Rt 66 until it ran out, then had to ride the interstate again. The landscape changed today from mountains to rolling hills with alternating climbs and downhills.
Today's mileage totaled119 miles! Check this map link. This is the longest mileage day yet. Life is good! I'm tired and going to bed. Might make it to Texas tomorrow...
