The Ride Aid 2020 Solo Charity Ride is a solo bike trip across the United States, designed to raise funds for several charitable organizations committed to serving people and animals, while creating awareness for the issues of homelessness, affordable housing, food insecurity, animal rights, animal protection, and animal rescues through a social media campaign like no other. This social media campaign will include feature videos of charitable organizations that serve people and animals in their communities, micro-fundraisers for these organizations along the route, inspirational messages each day of the trip, Where's Bodo? geography quizzes, live streams from the bike ride each day, and daily chats on the issues we are riding for. The goal is to engage and educate.
