The sun is out, and The Red Baron and I are seriously into training mode! After weeks of soggy weather, I’ve managed to make it out of the gym and onto the bike. This is great news… with only six weeks until the ride, I still have lots of work to do.
Monday I rode out from Freeport through Clarksburg, and then onto some back road through the vineyards. It was a stunningly beautiful day, and virtually no traffic once you get off of River Road. It was a great re-start to my training.
On the fund-raising front, I just passed my fund raising goal of $3,000!! This is great news, and a huge thank you to all who have shown your support. I’m happy to continue to accept donations however, the goal being to raise as much money as possible to support these worthy agencies.
Now maybe spending four days travelling through Northern California raising funds for HIV/AIDS related services has some appeal to you. But spending it on a bicycle doesn’t. The NCAC is always looking for volunteers to help with SAG, camping, and more during the ride. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in doing, and have four days available from May 12-15, contact Heather Rowan at NCAC for more details. email@example.com
For those who have followed my friend Ken, to whom I am dedicating this ride… he is now very sick, and hospice care is to start soon. I have the feeling I’ll be doing this ride in his memory.
