First Annual Mercy Gingerbread Housing is a hit!

Michelle McCauley, co-captain of the mercyRIDER support team this summer had the idea having kids at some of the Mercy Housing facilities make gingerbread houses.

Today, 37 kids and teens and another 10 or so young adults at Mercy Housing’s Wentworth Commons turned about 80 pounds of gingerbread, 28 pounds of frosting, bags of mini marshmallows, pounds each of skittles, mike and ikes, and m&m’s, pretzels, candy canes, and gum drops into Mercy Gingerbread Houses.

mercyRIDERS exceed $60,000 in donations!


Almost two years ago, when the six riders thought about a fundraising goal for our cross country bicycle tour, this was the number.  Thank you so very much for the support; financially, spiritually, and to those that opened their hearts to us along the way that made the ride a life-changing experience.

The money will go a long way in the form of supportive services for the former homeless that Mercy Housing serve all over the United States.

THANK YOU ALL from the mercyRIDERS team.

Today, I received the Fall copy of Compass, Carmel High School’s quarterly magazine, and a very nice full page article about my journey and perspective on the ride was in it.  The interview was done a little more than half way through the ride in order to get into the issue.  It’s amazing that at the time I thought I’d seen and experienced just about everything I would get out of the ride at that point.  Not true.  More trials, more smiles, and more growth.

Gratitude to those who made this ride possible

The 2013 Mercy Ride is complete. Our mission to raise awareness and support Mercy Housing during our 3,600 mile journey yielded several thousand online visits and nearly hit our contribution goal. We riders, in turn, experienced the wonders of 13 states, beautiful in both scenery and people. With heartfelt gratitude, there are many organizations and people who deserve mention.

Day 41 – July 25 – ending in Rehoboth Beach

No Bikes on the Bay Bridge

No Bikes on the Bay Bridge.

Once again the rain threatened, but the rain never came.  We weren’t allowed to bike over the bay bridge, so Michelle carted us over into nearby Chester.

Mark had the distinction of getting the first and now the last flat of our ride.  He may even had the most flats.  I don’t think anyone eclipsed 10 total.

Delaware is very bike friendly with wide shoulders and lanes dedicated for turning only cars and bikes.  As we approached the Rehoboth Beach area, the traffic was bad but the bike lane had us moving right along.
