Pedalling Pamphilon takes on the USA

To mark his recent 60th birthday, Life Member Tony Pamphilon recently set out to cycle across the USA.Tony Pamphilon USA trip 1

Tony's life membership was awarded for his distance running achievements, which included anchoring our veterans' road relay team to numerous national medals, and co-hosting our annual Music Quiz with brother Craig for over 20 years.

He began his ride at the well-known boardwalk at Asbury Park, New Jersey, on the Atlantic Coast (photo above). He is taking a northerly route across the continent, below the Great Lakes.

Tony is no stranger to the demands of long-distance cycling, having ridden, e.g., from Alaska to Seattle, across Cuba, through Eastern Europe, and from Southern Portugal to London. Those, though, were done in company, while this is a solo venture. For the most part, he will be camping.

We wish him well in his venture and shall provide occasional updates on his progress.
