We e-biked across America for a fundraiser. The tour started on April 2 and was completed after 4,685+ miles four months later. We have designed a brand-new route that starts in Washington DC and ends in San Francisco.
Dr. Gregory F. Maassen, founder of E-bike Lovers, raised over $178,000 for the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy by e-biking 4,685.8 Miles = 7541.1 KM across the United States.
Dr. Maassen gives an update on the one-person e-bike convoy traveling across America. He has arrived at the finish line in San Francisco, California, after cycling 4,685.8 miles in four months.
