On July 8th 2010 a young endurance athlete, Paul Spencer, plans to embark on his effort to set a new world record for cycling across America (North to South, West to East) in order to raise awareness for cycling and to raise money for three very worthwhile charities (Boys and Girls Club, Lupus Foundation and Disability Snowsport UK). According to the guidelines he must travel from a border town in the north to one in the south and has chosen to travel from Blaine, Wa to San Diego, Ca. He will then cycle from Los Angeles across country to New York for the second leg of his journey! He is hoping to complete the approx. 4750mile journey in less than 50 days!
