 Sounds epic, but if it were me, I'd change it up like so: 6 bike parks, 50 friends, and 50 bike park passes that are valid at those 6 bike parks.

 Not as much driving as you may think, if you look at the order he's going to resorts in theres never as far as I can tell more than 1-2 hours driving. So fuel costs will be large because he's travelling a long way combined but each day it wont be huge. A trip on this scale however will run to a few grand

 I think it's totally doable as long as the rider paces himself right. A trip of this magnitude is bound to have a few hurdles and he's going to need a little luck along the way. As long as his body holds up I think it should be one epic journey. I'll be watching!

 A trip like this screams overuse injury. Shall we start a pool? I say day 18 he has to call it quits.

Quite a lot of driving. Anyone care to calculate the cost?

 the cost of the gasoline will be around 1'100 dollars. It's an average of 90 km each day (max 300, min 5km)

 will be epic if he can pull this off but it sounds like he is not going to have much time to enjoy the parks.
