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.
