When Is My Next Ride?

From MS Society Website:

“Bike MS: City to Shore is more than a ride. It’s an experience grounded in camaraderie and marked by passion, inspiration, determination and pure enjoyment. The 2-day event, with route options for all cycling abilities from 25-180 miles, will take you through the flat terrain and back roads of South Jersey to the blueberry fields of Hammonton.”

Who Am I?

Hi, I’m Phil Cooper, CEO of Cooper Pest Solutions and BedBug Central. Our company has a very simple mission which is to WOW our Clients, WOW our Teammates, WOW our Service Partners and WOW our Community. To this end I have built Phil Across America, which combines my cycling and fundraising efforts on behalf of charities I am passionate about. When I’m not riding thousands of miles each summer you’ll find me the rest of the year as a Spin/Cycling instructor at two health clubs, serving on various community and trade association boards as well as running two great companies. My teammates at Cooper Pest Solutions and BedBug Central make all of this possible as I work with the greatest team a CEO could have. So follow me as I work to overcome new challenges that await me on my journey full of blood, sweat and tears this summer.

Phil Cooper
