Hey all bloggers in the happy internet-land. I've just signed up for the MS150 bike ride and would like to let everybody know how my fund raising is coming along.
I'll be riding a fixed gear bicycle - you know, the kind with only one speed - no you can't stop pedaling - when the wheels are moving, the crank arms are turning. Also, I'll be riding on a team - you know, with other people - all riding either fixed gear bikes or bikes with a freewheeling single speed. We pledge no gears and no spandex for this 150-mile ride, spread over two days in June, hot and sweaty June.
As of right now (~1640), I've got 25 bucks USD in the pot. I'm hoping for more than that, of course. My personal goal is to raise 1k USD.
As a university of MN student for many long years, this is my first time riding the MS-150. Any help from fellow U of MN'ers would be great. I'm a long time bike commuter, a some-time century rider, a dog-lover, music listener, beer drinkerer, and all around good guy.
I'm even pledging to have some sort of get-together for people who sponsor me. So if anyone does indeed get the urge, make sure I have a way of getting hold of you for this gathering at a location and time of my choosing.
