“I live my life by the motto of No Regrets, to live life to the fullest and help as many people as I can. I have No Regrets over my first 50 years and as I start the next 50 I will continue to live by this motto." - Phil Cooper

Phil Cooper’s 60 day, 3,780 mile cross country journey will come to an end on Wednesday, August 1 in San Francisco, CA. Cooper, an active cyclist, began the ride in Yorktown, Virginia on June 1st as part of the Bike the US for MS TransAtlantic Ride with 17 other riders going coast to coast. A personal mission of Cooper's since the mid 80’s, the decision to do this ride came as a challenge both physically and mentally and a way to mark one of life’s milestones, his 50th birthday!    

Cooper organized PhilAcrossAmerica.com to work in conjunction with the Bike the US for MS and National MS Society fundraising efforts. PhilAcrossAmerica has acted as a platform for various social media efforts along the way, including blog posts, photos and videos captured by Cooper on his journey and a tracking device to follow his progress and route. PhilAcrossAmerica has seen many a guest rider along the way (almost 30 to be exact), as family, friends, colleagues and industry associates have linked up with Cooper at one point or another during his trek across the country.

Having cycled through eight states Cooper has encountered a variety of terrain and weather, all the while feeling stronger and stronger as each day passed. “We rode through Kansas and encountered temperatures well into the 100’s, the Rockies were wicked climbs and the Nevada desert offered challenging headwinds. In each case, you truly have to appreciate how beautiful and picturesque the scenery is every day,” said Cooper.

“I live my life by the motto of No Regrets, to live life to the fullest and help as many people as I can. I have No Regrets over my first 50 years and as I start the next 50 I will continue to live by this motto. We go around this life once so I promise to make it count. Please help me reach my fundraising goals and help find a cure for this awful disease.” – Phil Cooper. To donate to please visit PhilAcrossAmerica.
