Registered for BikeMS KC again this year

August 11, 2014

BikeMSKansasCityRideWith my strange malaise from all things bike in the final few months of last year, I am not sure I even MENTIONED this on the blog; but, I rode last year in the KC BikeMS ride in mid-September.   It was my first time doing this ride that I’d read about since I became interested in cycling.  I had a really great time, and raised over $400 in sponsored dollars for this great cause.

This year I am returning to do the ride again.  It occurs over the weekend of September 13-14, and once again (as last year) starts at the Garmin HQ here in Olathe, with the overnight location in Lawrence.

Couple things will be different for me from last year:

Unlike last year, I’ll have a buddy along.  My friend & cycling buddy, the irrepressible Mr. V, will be riding this year in his first-ever MS ride.

Also unlike last year, I am likely to camp in the overnight at Lawrence, as a large # of the riders do.  Last year, since I live only several miles from Lawrence, I had friends Mr. and Mrs. O drive out, pick me up after Saturday’s ride, then drop me back off Sunday morning.  Instead, this year, I am likely to camp, wake up on Sunday morning and get going!

Looking forward to this year’s ride.  This is an event I’m going to hope to do annually for some time to come.  Great cause, great fun ride, fun event, win-win all around.

I’m not making this blog entry to attempt to recruit more donations; BUT, if anyone reading feels like sponsoring me for a few clams, I’d be very appreciative!  Below is the link to do so…
