Twenty years ago, in July 2004 I started a journey to go to Chicago, Illinois! By way of riding a bike. I rode a Huffy and a Fuji both a 12 and a 21. I am saying this to say once you set your mind to do something with the help of the Lord anything is possible just do not make your journey into an idol. I rode that way as a fundraiser to raise funds for Literacy my destination was the Opah Winfrey show which I attained the unfortunate thing was that she was in Africa opening a school for young women and girls, I shook off my disappoint meant by staying focused on my mission and which was to raise awareness and not meet Oprah I would have appreciated the help and exposure she would have afforded the cause. I rode the Katy Trail for over one hundred miles that was land donated by the Southern Railroad to build a bike Trail across Missouri I miscalculated and did not realize that Missouri was eighty-five percent hills Yes, it was a great accomplishment speed bike the Fuji was the twenty-one speeds on a mountain bike and the other on a touring bike it was a grueling a journey that took seven Days, it was 576 miles
