I’m not a cyclist…not yet. But I am stubborn….always.
Just stubborn enough to do what I say I will do, even if it hurts. I am a teacher who loves the outdoors. I love to camp and don’t mind getting dirty. I also love East Africa. I enjoy doing adventurous things with my husband. And part of my life’s purpose is to help the vulnerable in ways that are meaningful. My motivation for every day of this trip will be the sweet children of Kassanda Children’s Aid, some of whom I’ve met in person, who have very little hope in general, and none at all if they can’t go to school. I want to do something about that, and it starts now. ~ Stacy
I am a cyclist…I love it. The bike gives me a sense of freedom that I do not feel in other activities. I love being independent and testing myself against the terrain. As I roll through the mountains and force myself through the wind, cycling teaches me perseverance and determination.
The bike is critical to the people in East Africa and will provide with an awesome way to connect along the route in Uganda as Stacy’s pack mule. Pulling more than gear, I will also be hopefully trying to pull vulnerable students into an opportunity to attend school. ~ John
