About USA 2016

Hi, I am Tracey – A Nurse from Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

In 2016 I will be cycling across the USA to raise funds for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) alongside my colleague, Andy Dennis.

This Blog is a Brain Dump for my musings, grumbles, observations and general news about the progress of the cycle ride across the states.

The Route

This unsupported and self funded cycle challenge begins in San Francisco. It passes through the Nevada desert, over the Rocky Mountains, across the wide open plains of the mid-west, over the Appalachian mountains and finishes in New York. Over 4000 miles of adventure and challenge.

The Target

This project is part of an ongoing fundraising effort. The aim is to raise ??100,000 for Doctors Without Borders.

About MSF

M??decins Sans Fronti??res/Doctors Without Borders (MSF). We help people worldwide where the need is greatest, delivering emergency medical aid to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters or exclusion from healthcare.


Eighty-five percent of every pound you donate is spent on patient care. MSF tries its utmost to make sure that your donations are spent on saving lives rather than on administration and management costs.

Get your organisation behind me

If your team, department or company wants to back my efforts, I???d love to come and give you a short presentation. It will give you a taste of MSF???s inspirational work and give you an insight into the extraordinary 4001 mile challenge I???m setting myself. I???ve spoken to universities, schools and businesses in the past, so I promise it won???t be boring!


Help raise funds and awareness through anything from coffee mornings to running a marathon. Let me know your fundraising ideas by email.
