E-Bike Tour Across the U.S.
Dr. Gregory Maassen will be e-biking solo across the United States from Washington, D.C. to San Francisco, a 3,400 mile journey, to raise awareness and support for peripheral neuropathy research and education.
Gregory will follow the historic Lincoln Highway, in the footsteps of a young President Eisenhower, on the route that inspired the creation of the Interstate Highway System, and now, will forge a new transcontinental cycling route, and new hope for peripheral neuropathy discoveries.
Gregory, who will bring along traditional wooden shoes from his native country, the Netherlands, founded E-bike Lovers to provide members with free, high-quality e-bike travel experiences. His training for the tour includes over 2,000 miles of riding since November 2021 in Washington, D.C. Highlights of Gregory’s 3400 mile fundraising journey are as follows:
