Cycle across America

John Chestnut and his cousin Andrew Service are cycling 4,112 miles across America, starting in September and finishing in December, in aid of Christian Aid.

Their journey will start in Seattle, Washington on 27 September, before heading down the Pacific Coast through San Francisco to Los Angeles.  From there they head across the desert to Phoenix, before moving through Texas and the Gulf coast until they reach the Atlantic Ocean on the east coast of Florida.  They will be doing this trip unsupported by any backup teams and will be camping along the way.  They hope to finish in Jacksonville, Florida on 20 December.

If you would like to sponsor this mammoth undertaking in support of Christian Aid, they have set up a JustGiving account to collect donations at http://www.justgiving.com/fourlegstwobumsandafewthousandmile
