Pedaling against poaching has been pushing hard to raise awareness about the current illicit wild life trade issues around the world. 
My personal miles year to date 3602 as of 9-1-19, and the Pedaling Against Poaching Strava club has a cumulative mileage total of a whopping 138,580 miles and growing!
I am happy to report that I am now officially partnered with helpingrhinos.org and we are going to work together to grow our presence here in the US! 
This means that we will have more horsepower to spread the word, and more importantly support, and foster the relationships with the most incredible organizations in South Africa.
Other great news: The Pedaling Against Poaching on line store is now up and running. All sales through my site will become a donation through this GlobalGiving site! 
New T-Shirt designs are in the works and will be posted very soon. 
Stay tuned for more updates!

2019 has been busy! Pedaling Against Poaching continues to grow organically through social media and word of mouth.  

Here’s a quick snapshot of what’s been going on: 

Dr James Danoff-Burg (Helping Rhinos USA) paid me a visit last February. We discussed some strategies for the year and we were able to get out on the trail for a ride! 

I was approached via instagram by the manager of a local spin class studio named Cyclebar here in Chandler. We worked together to coordinate an event that took place on March 31st, where I was able to give a quick presentation about what’s happening to the wildlife of the world, and then we rocked out on the bikes for an hour. Every seat that was filled translated to a $25 donation. We wrapped that up with some Pedaling Against Poaching giveaways and an art auction. The wonderful art was graciously donated by local artist Melody Smith, and it was a big hit! Together we raised close to $800 that day! 

On March 21st, I was fortunate enough to be invited to set up an info booth at a live music show! Moon Hooch was the headliner, and I was able to talk one on one with hundreds of amazing people. It was a great night for networking and raising awareness. Moon Hooch also gave me a nice shout out while on stage! You need to check them out, they have amazing talent but more importantly, they have an important message to tell the world. 

My bike miles are piling up, I’ve already logged more than 2200 miles YTD! 

Here’s the big news. I am now officially on the board of directors for Helping Rhinos USA!! I’m looking forward to bigger and better things as we join forces to help these living treasures! 

As usual, I’ll keep on rolling!

Cheers!

Pedaling Against Poaching finished out 2018 with a strong finish.

I personally completed 5520 miles, and the Pedaling Against Poaching Strava club topped out at over 125,000 miles!

I continue to see a steady organic growth to the number of followers and supporters.

I’m going to make the same commitment for my mileage for 2019. Riding the equivalent to the length of Africa from north to south.

We are starting off the year with some wonderful raffle prizes and local events to raise awareness and hopefully raise some much-needed funds

I plan on continuing to support the Zululand Rhino Orphanage and Transfrontier Africa.

I’m looking forward to an even bigger year in 2019 and am grateful to you for all you have done to make such amazing things happen on behalf of rhinos!

Hello All!

I’m glad to report that I’m on track for hitting 5400-5500 miles by the end of January. And the Pedaling Against Poaching Strava club has amazingly logged more than 100,000 miles year to date!

We were very happy to be able to transfer $3500 USD to the Zululand Orphanage in August, and we have more donations to send their way from our “orphan support October” campaign.

T shirt sales have been steady, with all proceeds becoming a donation through GlobalGiving.

My number of followers on instagram and Facebook has been growing steadily, and organically. We now have more than 3100 instagram followers.

I’ve definitely learned a lot over the past year, and I’m planning on taking what I’ve learned to make 2019 even better!

Greetings everyone! Many things have been happening in the last few months!

We had some amazing, handcrafted pieces of jewelry from an artist in the UK, that sold very quickly! And 100% of the sale was turned into a donation! We also had another handcrafted silver pendant, from an artist in the Seattle area that has a new home.. and 100% of the sale was turned into a donation. 

Kevin Gonzales (Pedaling Against Poaching MN) built an amazing piece of wall art, from cedar and epoxy. We ran that one as a one week auction, for an incredible $350 donation! 

My miles for the year are spot on, with over 3800 miles year to date. 

The Strava club has logged a combined total of 75,778 miles!! Enough to circle the globe three times!! 

And most importantly, we were very excited to be able to transfer $3,500 to the Zululand Rhino Orphanage!! They have some big plans to help these babies, and this money will be put to a very good use!

Best to you all!
