Motorcycle Rider with MS Sets a World Record and Raises $4000

Paul Pelland, a NH resident and former long distance motorcycle competitor kicked off his Endless Road Tour, a million mile journey to raise awareness and funds for Multiple Sclerosis, with nothing less than setting his first world record!

 
PRLog - Oct. 6, 2012 - Paul is the first person to document riding 1000 miles in under 24 hours on 100 different bikes!  The 100 SADDLES-Sore 1000 fundraising event ended Saturday September 29, 2012 at National Powersports in Pembroke, New Hampshire. All of the proceeds raised went directly to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system.  Currently there is no cure.

Setting the record involved strategic planning, precise timing, fuel management, and lots of support from his sponsors. Paul had to ride the 1000 miles in mostly dark rainy and foggy conditions. With the exception of a smoking GPS unit and the horrific fog, the event went off without a hitch. Paul is pleased that his first fundraising event raised $4000 for the National MS Society.  Donations are still being accepted here:

Paul, who was diagnosed with MS in 2005 after experiencing weakness and numbness in his hands as well as cognitive difficulties, has begun an amazing one million mile ride for MS, attending and speaking at various MS patient events across the United States. Along the way, Paul has pledged to raise money by attempting various long distance challenges and records. This 100 SADDLES-Sore 1000 is his first!  Next spring he will attempt another record by riding 50,000 miles in 50 days, all in the name of MS.  Before getting his diagnosis, Paul was a top ten finisher of the Ironbutt Rally, an 11 day 11,000 mile motorcycle endurance event known as, “The World’s Toughest Motorcycle Competition.”

The entire million mile journey will be chronicled in real time at www.longhaulpaul.com.
When asked why he decided to embark on his epic adventure, he answers with a grin,

“I once was told a cure for MS was a million miles away, so I figured I would just go get it,
and bring it back.”
