Man With Lyme Disease Begins Cycling Cross-Country

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.
