Race Against Time!
Hey Everyone- I’m Riot and on August 2-9, 2019 at 6:15 am I will be leaving Liberty park on a journey like no other. This journey will be roughly 9,000 miles and go through all 48 states and the District of Columbia. To make it an extreme challenge we will attempt to do it in 8 days! If that’s not enough I will be sleeping outside next to my motorcycle every night. No Hotels! No comfy amenities at all. Just a Man and his machine battling against Time.
I do this ride to raise both money and awareness for Jar of Hope and their battle against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The goal is to raise $10,000 for Jar of Hope and help them to find a cure!!! I have listed the following commonly asked questions along with my answers to them. I hope that helps you understand this amazing ride!

A. It is a Motorcycle Challenge which covers all 48 states and will be attempted in 8 Days.
It is man & machine battling the clock! Trying to stay focused on the finish line.
Q. Why 8 days? Why not 10 like the Iron Butt association endorses?
A. Duchenne Muscular dystrophy is an extreme disease so to raise awareness and money, I will attempt this extreme ride to fight it.
Q. Why sleep outside next to the bike?
A. Kids with Duchenne don’t have it easy and they aren’t comfortable either so I will suffer a bit to help spread the word.
Q. How many miles?
A. Roughly 9,000 total miles.
Q. I can’t fathom how far that really is?
A. It’s like riding from New York City to Moscow- TWICE!

This is Truly a race Against Time. While I race around the country trying to get done in 8 days, Jim and Jar of Hope race to get doctors and researchers working on a cure! While this is going on every family affected stares at the clock as the days tick by and the terrible disease keeps attacking their boys! Knowing time is not on their side. This is why I ride! This is why I ask for your support. Because I know Time is not on their side! Again I thank you for all you do to make it possible.
