MS150 . . .

. . . Day 1!
What a great day to ride 75 miles!

Early start to the day with an alarm set at 4! Got up quickly, coffee and smoothie consumed and then off to the pick up location for the bus ride to Pewaukee.

Bus ride was uneventful - it was a beautiful sunrise, but no photo. Arrived in Pewaukee, and quickly located our bikes. The bikes arrived in a semi and were then spread out on the lawn.
Some years you find it right away and some years it is like finding a needle in a hay stack!

Here is our team, not the biggest, we had two people drop out last week. But we did raise over $5,000 for MS!
We flew (that is relative) finishing 75 miles in 4 hrs and 13 minutes. Fastest finish ever for me!

Here is Scott (co-worker and friend) coming into lunch!

My riding buddy Tricia and co-worker and friend Ken! 

We made it to Whitewater and are staying in the dorms. Whenever someone wants to relive their younger years, have them stay in a college dorm! No air, hard beds . . . Oh the memories. 

Tonight there will be a program in a big (huge) tent, celebrating all the funds raised and explaining some of the awesome research being done for MS. Beer will be available. Tomorrow will be another 75 miles . . . but that is tomorrow. 

Enjoy the moments!
