Pedaling along a scenic highwa...
I am working on putting together a team of cyclists to ride with me in this year's MS 150, a 2-day ride from Tulsa to OKC on old Route 66 to raise money for MS. hee aptly-named ride covers approximately 150 miles in 2 days. Because it is a fundraiser, I will post instructions for making donations, for those who are so inclined. The ride will be in mid-September.

A CU, Where Regs Don't Apply
Do they make the pull-behind kid trailer things in adult size? I would gladly sit in it while you hauled me around as I intermittently yelled at you to go faster and threw things at you.

If you do the entire thing on a unicycle, I'll fully sponsor you. Ragbrai is coming up next month, there are a few people that do the whole thing on one, totally crazy! 471 miles in a week. (Ragbrai is our annual across the state bicycle ride for those that aren't as cool as Pup and I)

Hey, I just found out PA has bike MS events as well! Some of the 150s look pretty challenging - one of the day one maps I looked at included 3 class 5 climbs - one of them 66 miles into the ride on the first day!

The 150's are pretty much done for the year in my area but there is one coming in September that is a one day 60 mile ride that I might have to check out, if I can get some seat time on the bike between now and then. Or maybe just shoot for a 150 next year.

A little extra motivation for me to get involved with MS fundraising now that it has hit so close to home.

Not trying to sidetrack the thread, but it was announced that Sharon & Ozzie Osburn's 26 year old son Jack has been diagnosed with MS.

Good Luck Guys! Be sure to post as I would donate also.
