Team Peaches (150),

2020 marks the 8th year of riding for the Cure. To date I have ridden well over 1000 miles, and have raised (with the help of my fellow Team Peaches Riders) north of $15000.00! 2020 also marks my 3rd year as a volunteer for the Scenic Shore Executive committee. My role is to make at least a $12000 per year impact. I do this by seeking sponsorship's for the ride. My accomplishments include recruiting Pepsi as the official beverage sponsor, and Emmi Ross as the official cheese sponsor. My impact for 2018 was approximately $12,000 and approximately $15000.00 in 2019.

Team Peaches was formed in 2016 when my daughter Shandie decided to ride the 150 with me. She is now the team captain of our 25 mile team.

We ride in honor of Anyka "Peaches" Johnson. A very courageous young lady. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in December of 2012. With her amazing family (Holli, Jason, Kyler, Alyza & Kenryk) she fought and and ultimately kicked cancers butt. On July 13th she turns 11!

In 2017 My Cousin David Jacobs was diagnosed with Lymphoma, he will have to fight the rest of his life, but thankfully his is a treatable form of blood cancer.  He too is in my thoughts as I ride the shore.  You got this David Jacobs, it is my honor to ride for your fight as well!

The Scenic Shore Bike Tour, the highlight of my year as a cyclist, and a fighter (to end blood disease) has been altered, as a result of COVID-19. It is simply not safe to have 2500 people (1500 cyclists) together over 2 days of biking to fight, honor, celebrate victories, and remember those who we have lost due to blood cancer.

Cancer is not cancelled, so the bike to fight cancer has not either. It has just changed in scope.  The Scenic Shore Bike Tour has morphed into the See Your Own Shore 150. Over 150 hours, from September 6th thru September 12, I will be creating my own Scenic Shore 150 tour.

My Plan is Grand

I did the math and since 2013 I have logged 1050 miles on my bikes riding the shore. I have also always wanted to ride from McFarland to Mequon the night before the ride to add the extra miles spending time doing what I love.

Here is my See My Own Shore

September 6: McFarland To Mequon

September 7: Mequon to Manitowoc (traditionally day 1)

September 8: Manitowoc to Sturgeon Bay (traditionally day 2)

September 9: Sturgeon Bay to Manitowoc

September 10: Manitowoc to Mequon

September 11: Day Off

September 12: Mequon to Darlington

The last day of riding will be very special to me. I will end in Darlington, home of Hollie Johnson & Jason Johnson. The mother and father of Anyka "Peaches" Johnson, and the reason I started this ride is 2013. The route from Mequon to Darlington is exactly 150 miles (Imagine that).

How the hell did you come up with this route you ask?

I added up the miles of every ride I planned to do in 2020 and it came to 500. My See My Own Shore will be 504. The last 4 will be in and round Darlington. Route designed by and lead by none other than Anyka "Peaches" Johnson and the Johnson family!
