|Team CBC and hundreds of other prepare to start|
Two weeks ago I bicycled in the Bike MS ride in New Bern, NC along with over 2,000 other riders. The weather over the weekend was perfect (mostly in the seventies with only light breezes). On Saturday, I rode with a group of about 40 to 50 people, mostly folks I know from CBC. We averaged slightly over 20mph for the 100 miles and had a great ride. Because of the nice double pace line and the lack of hills, it felt like less effort than a my typical Saturday 60-mile ride. That was good as there were a lot more miles to ride on Sunday!
The evening festivities on Saturday and Friday were also great
and I got to spend time with quite a few people that I’ve become friends with
through cycling and elsewhere. On Sunday, I rode 75 miles with some good friends,
including Laura and John. That route went to Oriental and provided some beautiful vistas along the water.

Thank you to the many folks who supported me (and the National MS Society) on this ride. If you were meaning to do so, but have not yet gotten around to it, you still can donate until October 7.
Thanks again for your support. I hope to see you out riding!
