    ^^ That's the page. :)

    I did this ride last year, but only went 30 miles since it was my first organized riding event that wasn't airborne half the time on a trail somewhere... This year I'm riding 62 miles to help raise awareness (and cash) to help fight diabetes!

    I could bore you with text, but I'll keep it short- you all know what the disease is and how much it can mess with a person's life. Help me fund research for a cure. My personal fundraising goal is $1000, and the company team goal is $150k this year.

    Pics from last year's ride:

    Super sweaty halfway through:

    Starting line- you ride the first two miles on the main oval before heading out onto the course:

    The check from last year- this year's goal is $150k! Help hit the mark!

    If I donate to your cause, will you donate to one of mine?


    Also, 62 miles? Weak sauce. That's a short ride for us temperate climate guys. Only 1 lap around the lake. :p

    Sure!

    I'll do the MS150 next year- but try your lap around the lake in 100+ degree weather and 90%+ humidity with zero wind. It's kinda like when you northern guys say "screw AC, you don't need it" but it really is a requirement down here for survival. ;)
