Riding for Rhinos

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!

Okay! We have 5 full months behind us, and we are still gathering more momentum each and every day!
I have over 2500 miles logged year to date, and the Strava Club that I have created has logged well over 40,000 miles, all in the name of rhinos!
Big news: We have expanded, and now have a Minnesota chapter of Pedaling Against Poaching. I am excited to be joined by Kevin and Anna Gonzalez, along with their spokes-pig Norman! these guys are full of drive and ambition, and they are working on multiple avenues to help generate more donation traffic to this Global Giving site. We hosted an event at t locally brewery just last, week that produced a donation based on beer sales! Anna has generated donations via a makeup party, and she is also working on some upcoming yoga classes that with route proceeds to protect rhinos!
Additionally, we are partnered with Undaunted Clothing, out of Las Vegas. all Pedaling Against Poaching shirt sales will be totaled up monthly, and 100% of the proceeds will be turned over to Global Giving as a donation! shirt sales have been pretty strong. I am excited about this!
I was fortunate enough to get up close and hands-on with a Male Southern White Rhino, here in AZ, at the Out of Africa Wild Animal Park. the experience was truly amazing, and I am planning on many return visits to spend more time with him. 
Importantly, we have sent $5,000 to the Black Mambas Anti-Poaching Unit in South Africa for them to use to equip their rangers with the best equipment avaialble. I am so lucky to be able to partner with these awesome women and men!
I am currently looking for other like minded people to join me globally, to raise awareness, and raise more much needed funds! Please reach out to me if you'd like to start a chapter of Pedaling Against Poaching and help raise money for this important cause!
more updates to follow!

Greetings! 
With 2.5 months of action behind us for 2018, and a lot has happened....
I've already logged over 1200 miles on the trail, all in the name of Rhinos and I have been spreading the word every day!
My Social media following has grown from 8 followers to over 2200! It is refreshing to meet like-minded folks from around the globe, that want to help support this very desperate cause. I have made a point to include educational information about Rhinos on my posts throughout the week. This has proven to be very popular with followers, and I am also learning new information as I go. 
I also have a Pedaling Against Poaching club, set up on Strava, which is 59 members strong at the moment, and growing each day. To date, the members of this club have logged well over 17,000 miles! truly incredible.   
Donations are steadily trickling in, and I have some other irons in the fire that should help to give us a boost. We have a long way to go!
T-shirts and artwork are both available now, and all profits will go directly to help rhinos!
Let's take a stand together, and be the voice for the voiceless!
I'll keep on pedaling...you keep up the support, and keep on spreading the word!
Can't Stop, Won't Stop!
Sincerely, 
Jeff Harrison
