This ride will start on October 15, 2022, outside of Nashville, Tennessee.  I've secured a bike shop near the start for shipping and assembly.  We'll try and secure churches for accommodations to keep costs down.  Two requirements of the riders is a $1000 donation to Blue Line Valor and a helmet.  This ride will be 1750 miles, 29 days with 3 rest days.  We'll start outside Nashville, ride the Natchez-Trace Pkwy. 440 miles to Natchez, MS where we'll have our first rest day.  From there, we're going South into Louisiana, bang a left (East) along the border into Alabama.  Head to the Gulf of Mexico, staying out of Mobile, hug the Gulf into Florida. Bang a right (South), hugging the Gulf coast till we reach the North tip of the Florida Everglades.  We'll cut across Florida to reach the bridge that will take us into Key Largo. From there, it's just a 2 day ride down to Key West where we'll end.  Dinner & drinks at Margaritaville.  I have the whole route mapped on ridewithgps if you'd like to see it.  The donations will be split 50/50 with St. Jude's Cancer Research Center for Children.  Please email, txt, or call for any questions or concerns.

Ride Across America with Curt

Hello! My name is Curt Wildemann.  When I did my first ride across America,  I never imagined that I would be organizing these epic rides for charity. I’m doing a long-distance cycling trip to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), a leading not-for-profit organization exclusively dedicated to preventing suicide. We're calling the trip “Canada to the Keys". I’ve already cycled across country for charity twice, once for Wounded Warriors and once to help build homes for the underprivileged with the Fuller Center for Housing.

I bet your wondering how you can help? Well, if you're up for an adventure, and can raise $1000 for the AFSP, then you can come along with me.  You can also help by simply donating to the AFSP.  Either way, your efforts are greatly appreciated.
