Kip and USAF Active Duty Cyclists (RAGBRAI- 2014)

Hello, I’m Kip Othold, a 67 year old USAF Veteran who served during the mid/late 1970s.  While I served during the Vietnam War Era, I was never deployed.  However, I do have extreme respect and honor for all who have served in the military in this wonderful nation we call Home, the USA.

Commencing April Fool’s Day, I along with 14 others, will bicycle from San Diego’s Pacific shoreline to St. Augustine, Florida’s Atlantic beaches …a 3,100-mile trek spanning 48 days to:


  • Bring awareness to those patriots who suffer from PTSD.

  • Interact with Americans along the route to make known vets’ high suicide rate.

  • Generate funding for veteran relief organizations.


I have vetted and selected Paws for Heroes to be the recipient of all funds generated by my Fundraising.  I fully embrace Paws for Heroes and its Mission and will be proud to Ride & Promote this fine organization.

While having cycled only the past six years, I have participated in several long-distance rides, including the MS-150, the Tour du Rouge, and Iowa’s RAGBRAI.  But this most definitely will be the Mother Lode, the most arduous.

Please consider sponsoring me in my quest.  100% of all Donations will go to Paws for Heroes!

Thank You!

Kip Othold, USAF Veteran
