MP Jeff Baron Taking Road Trip For Charity

December 29, 2017

MP Jeff Baron is taking a road trip on a motorcycle in the United States in order to raise money for Big Brothers Big Sisters Bermuda, with the excursion taking him across Texas, Arizona, and California for a total of more than 1,350 miles.

A GoFundMe page linked to the effort said, “Help me raise $5,000 for Big Brothers and Big Sisters Bermuda! It’s just me, a Harley and the road.

“A penny a mile? A dollar a mile? You decide. Any amount will help kids here in Bermuda find mentors and life-long friends. Thank you all!”

The trip got underway yesterday [Dec 28], with Mr. Baron traveling from Dallas, Texas to Fort Hancock; he’ll continue on to Phoenix today [Dec 29], with the final leg of the road trip taking him to San Diego tomorrow [Dec 30].

    Three days for Dallas to San Diego on a motorcycle! That is ambitious. About 1500 miles. 500 miles per day. 10 hours a day travel. Hope it is not a mind numbing Harley. Miles & miles of nothing much but semi arrid dessert & dessert with nothing to block the wind. He won’t forget the trip, that is for sure.

      500 miles a day is nothing. You need to travel a little more. I used to do that in work 3 times a week in the UK for 5 years.

      No matter though, good luck Mr Baron, a very worthwhile cause.

        You did, did you? Edinburgh to London is not much over 400 miles. That would be quite the commute. And yes I have travelled a bit. At least 6 times coast to coast of the US plus a few times to Alaska from the East Coast, also by road.

        For those not familiar with distances in the west, 500 miles is Toronto to Baltimore. A very long day on the road.

        • PreQual says:

          It wasn’t a commute. Based in the Midlands, visiting construction sites all over the UK. Barnsley, Scunthorpe, Devizes, Basingstoke, Hereford etc. Brutal, but well paid.

    • Micro says:

      Depends what roads and speed limits and what you manage to average. Having gone coast to coast, 500 miles is nothing.

    Thanks Mr. Baron. Hopefully you raise way more than $5k for this worthy charity.

    Joyride. If he ran it maybe it’s would be worth considering. A Motorcycle ride isn’t.

    • Pah says:

      Glad he’s thinking of service, but do something that challenges your mind, body, or spirit or all 3. Perhaps take a kid from the BBBS on that Joyride as an alternative.

      Keep trying Jeff. Your efforts will serve you well.

    Lern how to pick it up before you ride it.

  6. hhmm…same person who blatantly refused to accept responsibility for his negative actions in “THE PEPPER SPRAY” horror.

      Betty , you can not re-write history so please spare us the fake news along with your fake anger.

    I don’t understand why so many claim he’s a lazy spotlight-seeking narcissist.
