Less than a week! Great 65 mile ride on Sunday, AND WINE!

Hi All –

Event is this coming weekend… 402 training miles in this year! On Friday did a good 15 mile training ride with courageous Tanya, our captain and inspiration, on what turned out to be a tough MS day for her but she powered through. I was gonna keep going but my bike wasn’t shifting right.

99.6 miles yesterday and today! $4500 so far

Hey all – just a training update – 320 miles in.  Got in a 54 mile right yesterday (Saturday) with teammate Deb, and a 45 mile one in today. Today started out with Captain Tanya and Mark for the first 14 miles, and then took on some hills on my own to finish out the 45. Getting ready to tackle BikeMS weekend in 13 days!

2 weeks left – 220 training miles in – Holland, MI gifts – $4475 so far!!

Hey All – Sorry for being quiet this last month… some news to catch you up on!

– First of THANK YOU to all whom have donated so far! I am a little behind in getting out thank you emails, with some family health issues. But things are smoother now.

– Have 220 miles of training in this year, though lost a few weeks of riding when I was in my “down” stretch above, but feeling better and have 61 miles so far this just this week – with a 41 mile ride last Sunday with teammates, and a 20 mile ride last night with lots of hills. With the amazing donations you all have made I was really gonna push and train to do the 100 mile routes… but losing a few weeks of training, I am just gonna shoot for the 75 miles routes on June 11 & 12. For the September BikeMS event, I am definitely going for the double century that weekend though.

Challenge Week || Fundraising start for June ride in Holland,MI and Sept ride in Frankenmuth

Hey All –
Some of you did not receive the below email of the kick off for this year’s Bike MS rides – June and Sept. I am grateful for well wishes as well as any donations for MS. My friend and our Team Circle of Friends captain, Tanya, bravely fights MS herself and still gets out on her bike for these events every year.  She raised money for the MS Society for 10 years doing BikeMS before being diagnosed with MS herself in 2001.  She is all of our team members’ inspiration and motivation. The MS Society uses donations both for support programs and for funding some of the great research going on.
