Virtual Bike MS Bike to the Bay

Next weekend was to be the Chris and Steve bicycle adventure to Delaware. Steve has been my mentor and training partner for years. We have participated in Bike MS events for over a decade, mostly in Georgia, but this was to be our second adventure trying a different location. Our plan was to grab our bikes, take them north on Amtrak to Delaware, meet up with 2 of Steveís relatives, and participate in a Bike MS event there known as Bike to the Bay. This 2 day, 150 mile (75 mile out-and-back between Dover and Delaware Beach) charity ride raises funds for the National MS Society.

Sadly Steve and I were struck by a motor vehicle during a bike ride 3 weeks ago, and Steve is still recovering from severe injuries, so our trip had to be cancelledóor hopefully just postponed for a year. However I was much less seriously injured, and I am committed to riding the mileage as pledged.

I plan on doing a ride locally on the same days as the Delaware event, October 7 and 8th, riding 75 miles each day. Hence, Virtual Bike to the Bay.

I ride for Steve, who is currently sidelined, and continue to pray that he will be fully recovered and pain free and riding his bike again as fast as possible.

I ride because the driver who hit me hasnít broken my spirit.

I ride to send my annual Ďone finger saluteí to the MS MonSter and honor all those who fight it.

I ride to honor my promise to my donors, who have helped me raise almost $2000 dollars in the fight against MS.

I write this for several reasons.

One, to update all my friends and sponsors about the latest developments in this endeavor.

Two, if you are local, and want to join me for some or all of my riding next weekend, you are welcome. On Saturday I plan to lead the 10 mile path ride as usual at Bicycles Unlimited at 930. Afterward Iíll swap to my road bike and ride a moderate paced (non-beginner/self-supported) 65 mile out-and-back course to Brooks and parts south, starting around 1045, taking about 5 hours. Sunday I plan to do several shorter legs. Iíll leave from my house in Fayetteville around 8, riding 15 miles to Bicycles Unlimited, then doing two 23-ish mile loops from the shop, starting at approximately 930 and 1145, and after finishing the second loop, ride another 15 miles back home.

And three, itís not too late to donate to the event, with proceeds going to benefit the National MS Society. You would honor me and all those who fight to end MS. Here is a link to the site:
