Only 2 Weeks before June BikeMS! 70 miles today and 269.6 total so far!

Surprised myself today with a bump up to 70 miles on today’s ride with teammate Meredith, after a shorter midweek ride. Actually for the June 10 & 11th event weekend in two weeks, I am now planning on the 100 mile on Saturday and – gulp – maybe Sunday too! Getting a little crazy for the crazy support from you all! We are over $3100 so far! AMAZING!!

21 Days until June Ride – Sandhill Cranes and 45+ Miles Today!

Had a great training ride today with teammates Meredith, Deb and Adam. Actually was a bit cool (mid 50s) and a little windy and overcast, but we were bundled up good. With just 3 weeks before the June BikeMS ride weekend we are trying to log some good miles and time in the saddle. We did little over 45 miles today and explored a newly paved section of a rails-to-trails path. Tackled some hills today, doing the “Pam Anderson” pair of bigger hills on the road around Kensington. Teammate Scott named them such and that’s what we still call them as we take on the challenge.

38 miles today, 92.9 total – 28 Days until June BikeMS! And 2022 Raffle Winners!

A great 38 mile training ride this morning with Meredith and Deb! Much fun as we tackled the hills with great weather. With less than a month until June 10 & 11th trying to up the mileage. But you all have donated $1625 so far, which is simply incredible and has me training harder with your support and words of encouragement. No promises, but if training goes well I may attempt the 100 mile route on the first day!
