Austin TX

There’s no place like home. On 11/11/11 we rode into Austin and completed the h2o ride. We pedaled through downtown and out to the Pfluger Bridge to return to where our ride began. Then we held a party with our families and supporters to remember and celebrate everything we had done together. Thank you God for [...]

Give it your all

In 2009 I rode the Texas 4000 for Cancer and it helped me think of & do the h2o ride. Here’s a post I’ve just written on the Texas 4000 blog: Two years ago I got to Anchorage on a bicycle. My team and I gave it our all for 70 days to get there. [...]

Half Full (Day 71)

It’s been a while since any of my updates have made it public, so here are a few images and thoughts from the 71st day of our journey. We left Our Redeemer’s Lutheran Church Monday morning. This church gave us record-breaking donations for clean water and demonstrated incredible service through hospitality. I’m also going to [...]

Powerless (Day 15)

Chad & Janet offered us the most restful rest we could’ve asked for. Saying goodbye to them was hard. Fortunately, Chad companioned the first 20 miles with us to help soften the blow… It was great riding with you Chad! I’m not sure when we’ll see y’all next, but I know there will be a time. [...]

Just Add Water (Day 8)

Our day began with a goodbye to Clovis. They were hosted us for our first Sabbath and they spoiled us… We made some great friends there that we will miss. We had a fairly short day coming up, 62 miles, but we still hit the road while the sun was coming up. We did see [...]

Wake Up (Day 1)

Today, June 20th 2011, The h2o Ride began. The h2o Ride began. Two years ago I started to dream about The h2o Ride. So much has happened in the last 700 days or so… There were many times where I nearly forgot about the dream. But God brought me back into it. He brought us [...]

The Roundabout Way

Here’s an excerpt from one of my favorite devotional books, God Calling. Jillian & I found this entry to be vividly relevant to our mission with h2o. The Roundabout Way Through briers, through waste places, through glades, up mountain heights, down into valleys, I lead. But ever with the Leadership goes the Helping Hand. Glorious [...]

40 Miles of Purpose

Throughout all of our preparations, I must admit that training has not been a top priority for us. The three riders we have so far have all done a long-distance cycling tour in the past. But since our departure date is approaching quickly (we leave in 6 weeks!), we decided we should go on a [...]
