Eight of us are riding relay style across America, hoping to finish in 7 days.  The team is made up of Stu Baldwin, Kevin Bespolka, Marc Christensen, Mark Colman, Andy Cooper, Fred Horwood, Chris Peters, and Nicky Szapary.  

We are doing this to help The Cameron Bespolka Trust raise money to bring about Cameron's Cottage.  This will provide a place for young people to experience and learn about nature and birds as well as a center for the Trust's activities.

We are very grateful to our sponsors for their support.  These include Napier Park Global Capital, Avis, Dick&Betsy DeVos Foundation, Sisley, Swarovski, Ulm Family, Windsor, Chubb, and the Stephen Baine, Gahan and Vissicchio Families.
