Twenty-four-year-old Darren O'Donnell was one of the 25,230 in attendance Tuesday night at Oakland Alameda County Coliseum, where the Red Sox fell to the Oakland A's, 5-0. Unlike the other 25, 229, O'Donnell had quite the journey ahead of him.

The Western Washington University graduate plans to ride his bicycle to all 30 major league stadiums this season. Already this month, he has seen games in Seattle and Oakland, and will cross the bay for tomorrow's contest between the Giants and Braves at AT&T Park. He hopes to wrap up his tour of California on May 2 in San Diego, and then will start making his way east. He plans to be in Boston on Aug. 16 when the Red Sox host the Rays.

O'Donnell's quest isn't something new. In fact, Massachusetts native Charlie Hamilton made the same journey in 2004 raising money for Dana-Farber, and fellow biker Romano Scaturro rode the baseball landscape last year. Both bikers are throwing their support O'Donnell's way on his Facebook page, "Baseball Biking Tour," where you can follow his progress throughout the summer.
