    John Donnally, 24, will finish his 4,000-mile bicycle from San Francisco to New York City in November.

    A two-month journey is underway for a 24-year-old Lyme sufferer and cyclist  who hopes to raise awareness and support research for Tick-borne diseases.

    John Donnally launched his 4,000-mile cycling journey from San Francisco to New York City Sunday afternoon.

    His goal is to get information out about Lyme disease and raise $50,000 to help improve Lyme disease diagnosis and testing.

    He also feels it is important to give people with Lyme disease a platform.

    Donally is scheduled to complete the ride in November when he crosses over the George Washington Bridge on the final stretch towards New York City.
