BIG RIDE

3.0

NORWAY

In 1987, four "Nelson's" bike from the west to the east coast of the United States (Big Ride 1.0). In 2019, 11 from the Nelson's extended family biked from Amsterdam to Rome (Big Ride 2.0). In 2022, we plan to ride from Tromsø to Bergen, approximately 680 miles. This is another bucket list adventure for the family with the added bonus of raising money for RP Hope.
