This is Jim Rienstra, he is riding his bike from Minnesota to Alaska to help raise money for the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund and in honor of his father who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2005 and passed away six months later at the age of 59.
I have known Jim for some time, I would say from around 1994 or so, and he was and still is one of my favorite riders to watch and ride with. If you have a minute and some spare money laying around go and make a donation to help Jim reach his goal of $10,000. He is truly an amazing guy and wonderful person. And I would never dream of doing that ride. Simply amazing.
Here are the links to Jim's websites. Now please try and make a donation.
