2008 MS 150

So at the end of the 2007 MS 150 ride, I found out it cost me nothing to register for the 2008 event - so I went ahead and did so, not knowing where I'd be living next year. I'll probably be here, but if not, I'll just come back for the weekend - it was that much fun.

So I've got a page setup for raising money for the 2008 event - if you're needing tax breaks for FY 2007, go ahead and pledge me now!

Here's the URL, which is also in the above link:

I-35W bridge disaster

I went down to see if I could help, but help had arrived before I did.

I took some photos once I realized I wasn't needed. Then I got out of the way, but came back after dark just to see what I could do.

get yourself a dang sticker

get 'em here, kids.

MS150 ride photos

People, here are photos of the MS150 ride this past weekend, as seen through the eyes of me.

And a flickr pool started for members of Team 1FS.

HRC, not Crofut

But Crofut is still supplying the wine, it's just that they don't have permits from the county, as they are just starting out.

Zito's Bike

I took this photo during the art crank opening a few weeks ago at One on One (photos on my Flickr page). Still working on getting the benefit show in order, but the date is set for May 27th - live music, raffle prizes, food, drink - and all proceeds go towards Zito's medical bills. Mark your calendars and show up, you fool.

Of course the main objective of this blog is to raise money for the MS150 in June, so let's not lose sight of that - hey you, donate! (links on the right)

Hola! Would you like to be a Minneapolis bicycle scAVENGER?

Of course you would! Such fun and zany antics await you as a scAVENGER (we think it’s pronounced ska-VENG-er).

So join us
on Saturday May 5, the Cinco de Mayo, for a scavenger hunt via bicycle through Northeast Minneapolis. Ride places, do things, find things, drink things, see things, make things.

Thanks to my latest sponsor, Dr. Jami, the MS society is getting 90% of my goal of 1000 bucks.

Thanks to Jami and thanks to all that have sponsored this ride so far.

It's Good Friday, go and make the goodest of it.

Stay tuned for a benefit concert at The Nomad, where Zito used to be employed as a bouncer before the accident - and coincidentally, the place he was riding home to after work last Friday morning. He isn't able to continue his job as the bouncer, as he is wearing a torso brace for three months.
