I’ve only got a couple more days in California. My team sponsor, TradeWind Energy, is doing a group ride, the Houston MS150, that goes from Houston to Austin. It’s 170 miles or so, which is good for the weekly total. It’s nearly 1400 miles to get there, which is a little ugly, but I eventually had to get back to the Midwest. Trudi is flying back to Kanas City on Monday, right after Paris-Roubaix.
I’m going to drive to Austin, leave Bromont at my friend’s Ann house, to entertain her dog Lulu, and then rent a car and drive to Houston, to ride back to Austin to get the van and Bromont. Then drive to Kansas City on Monday, hopefully in time to pick Trudi up at the airport. It should be a hectic 5 days.
Anyway, all the riders, plus some of the corporate guys that ride are driving down from Kansas to participate. I’ve never done a charity ride before, other than bike tours and races that give the entries to charities. I paid $130 to enter, but I’m supposed to raise a minimum of $400 in donations for the MS society too. Since I started a little late, I figured posting it here is probably the best way to reach the most people. So, if you have a little something to donate, click here to get to the link to donate. It doesn’t take long and it’s for a good cause. Thanks.
