Cyclist goes coast-to-coast for breast cancer awareness

Harrisburg

Brent Bundy isn’t new to riding his bike across the country.

He’s currently on his sixth coast-to-coast ride and making a pit stop in Harrisburg.

Bundy rides in memory of his friend Gina who died in from breast cancer in 2004, six months after her diagnosis.

By riding 20,000 miles from Oregon to New York, he travels about 50 miles a day or more and stops in cities to speak with lawmakers about the importance of breast cancer awareness.

As each mile passes, Bundy is not only reminded of Gina but his ability to ride. He was in a car accident and was told by doctors he had a five-percent chance of ever walking again. 

He says he could not have done this ride a sixth time without the hundreds of people he met along the way. He hopes to be an inspiration to people fighting cancer.

“People have gone through so much worse,” he said. “Right now, they’re going through so much worse than I could ever imagine. I’m just biking.

Bundy is on the last leg of his ride. He has about 200 miles to go.
