What I love

What I love about cycling, in order: 1. Everything.

The ride

Some do the ride even though they can’t do the ride, and eventually they can do the ride.  Some never do the ride, and can never do the ride.

Did Contador Win?

On 2015-02-25 Google news picked up this story from Cycling Weekly that Contador would win the TdF.  I sure hope this didn’t happen as he’s my least favorite rider, going back to the Andy Schleck chain incident a few years back.

Why does it matter?

…it matters because it matters.

Riding Schedule

Better riding schedule: As much as you want when you can, or as much as you can when you want?

Welcome to June

Marshaled for the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure yesterday.  My phone seemed to be sucking more juice than normal, probably looking for cell towers out in the suburbs, and my BoostBloc had died, so I didn’t have any extra way to charge it.  The gist of which is that even though my Cyclemeter profile says 496, I really logged aboutr 504.5 miles in May on my bicycle.  The reason for the shortage in my profile is that I messed up one day and missed about 6.5; miles of my commute to work on the 23rd, and a couple of miles yesterday when I had no battery left.  That is a lot of miles in a month.

2014 MS-150 Bike Tour

MS Bike Tour

Multiple sclerosis is the No. 1 disabling disease of young adults in America.

The average annual cost of living with MS exceeds $35,000 per person with lifetime costs of more than $2.2 million.

At least 1,000 people with MS in Minnesota live on $600 per month – that’s $200 below poverty level.

This year’s tour is June 6 – 8, 2014.

Won’t you sponsor me this year to continue the fight?  A sponsorship donation as small as $0.10/mile or $15.00 would be a big help, and if you can do more that’s great too!
