Editor’s Note: Wilmington native Justin Field is a 2011 Honors graduate of the University of Delaware and will begin medical school in Philadelphia in the fall. Today Justin sets out on a TSD-sponsored bike ride from Dewey Beach to San Francisco  to raise money for the Food Bank of Delaware, a journey which readers can follow  here at TownSquareDelaware.com. Take it from here Justin:

Thanks guys. For the next sixty days, I will travel across the Delmarva peninsula, over the Appalachians, through the Great Plains, atop the Rockies, and brave the Nevada desert, finally ending in San Francisco, California. I will not spend a penny on gasoline, however –  this trip will be on a bicycle. I’ll be joined by Dean Hansen, a student at James Madison University, from Herndon, Virginia. We’ll travel West, following the path of the pioneers and camping along the way.

In this series I will write about my experiences on the road: the good, the bad, the ugly, the weird, the beautiful, and the not-so-beautiful. Through pictures and words, I’ll show you what America looks like from a bike saddle, as I experience the ups and downs of life on the road.

However, as a future medical professional, I wanted to make this trip more than a leisurely ride through the country, but a crusade for a worthy cause. Throughout my journey I will raise money for the Food Bank of Delaware and awareness of their important work. The Food Bank provides emergency assistance to over 240,000 people in Delaware by working with a wide network of non-profit relief groups. Relying on donations, they help prevent hunger and educate the community in making healthy food choices on a limited budget. Anybody interested in joining this fight against hunger can make a donation at this webpage.  More soon…..
