Day 1

I am participating in my 4th MS Best Dam Bike Ride to raise money for MS.  Two days of biking 75 miles each day.  
Here is a pic of our team the Power Peddlars at the start in Pewaukee WI.   Although we are a small team - we raised over $10,000.  

The weather was perfect for day 1.  70's and sunshine.  Hardly any breeze in the morning with about 9 mph in the afternoon.  The past 3 years were much more "normal" weather.  90's - so this is beautiful biking weather!

A tradition is to stop at Squidy's bar in Palmyra for a beer.  

I can honestly say this was my best and fastest 75 miles ever!  

Relaxing and looking forward to food and this evening program - oh and the beer!

Tomorrow will be tough - it is a lot more hilly.  We will see - I might opt to ride 50 instead of the 75!  It just depends on how I feel.

  1. Hi!! I didn't realize you were blogging again! How fantastic that you are doing the MS bike ride once again...you are amazing! BTW, I saw the picture of you without your prosthesis and I agree, it's not very obvious, I doubt I would have noticed if I were running by you. It seems like you continue to do well...I'm glad I spotted your recent entry in my dashboard :)
