Good Luck to Friends on Some Big Rides

Several friends are heading out this week on some very big biking adventures. Bill Beck, Clint Provenza, Chip Adams, and Clif Dierking are all headed to New York for the 1000K Lap Around the Lake. Beginning Thursday they will have 3 days to complete a 1000 Kilometer brevet. The route is a lap around Lake Ontario, passing through New York and Canada.

Chris Lane is headed to New England to participate in a 500+ mile charity ride raising money for the fight against diabetes. In our fat lives both Chris and I were warned by our doctors to loose weight or inevitably become diabetes and / or heart patients. So this issue comes close to home. He'll enjoy a few days of flat riding along the New England coast a few challenging days climbing some big hills over the course of a week.

Best of luck to all of you and to all of the riders in both events. Very inspiring.

Today Chris and I met for the ride to work. I stayed late and rode home solo. It's very hot and humid today and for the next couple of days. But I kept drinking and seemed to tolerate it well. Not sure how it would have gone if I rode mid afternoon.
