7 weeks to train ...

Only 7 weeks left to train, and we have more snow today, on top of about a foot the last couple of days. I need to be training, but not in this mess.

Ok, I need a couple of my 5 readers to donate, and get their friends to donate, to help me ride to help families in need. The summer ride from Savannah, GA to Vancouver, BC, starts in 7 weeks. This is a nine-week ride, covering about 3,700 miles, and I still need about $2,400 to reach my riding goal. My donation button is on the right side of this blog, and remember, any amount from $5 to $5,000 is greatly appreciated. Well, $5,000 would be a little more appreciated than $5, but since all donations go to help families in need of a hand up, any amount is welcome.

This summer I will not be riding the entire distance because I will be leaving the trip July 6 and returning July 15. I will be joining brother John, his daughter Hillary, and his son Brad, to fish in Alaska. I am disappointed that I will be skipping out on my Fuller Center family, but I am looking forward to some quality time with Weber family.

As I have blogged, the spring ride was fantastic. Cold and wet, but fantastic. Here are some pictures from that ride.

                                         people participating)

See, I can still do some actual work

A nice paceline, working together

long to learn how to raise her bike for the pictures)
