What we all forgot to state was that this is not a "run-of-the-mill" charitable contribution question, and that if PosNetWorth is concerned about the correct treatment of each of the possible deduction/income items, she should seek paid, professional advice. Reliance on the free, albeit high quality, advice given on this board provides no protection if we are wrong.I just thought it might be interesting to ask a question that wasn't run-of-the-mill.In response to some other details,-- I went out on Thursday and returned on Monday morning; the ride met at 6 am Sat. for team pictures and went through dinner Sunday.-- The bike box seems to be essential for the bicycle-riding component of, well, a fund-raising bike ride. My other option might have been renting a bike, although it may have been a challenge.Thanks for the advice. I hadn't really thought before to deduct anything other than my own contribution, and this shows that it might be appropriate to talk to someone with tax expertise. Since I also screwed things up with our dependent care flexible-spending account this year as well, I think I'll make a mental note that this is not the year to rely on TaxCut or TurboTax.Thanks,-- Laura
